Do you DOJO? link up

Wow, it sure has been awhile.  School kinda caught up to all of us this month.  Assessments, assessment meetings, new reading units of study, yada, yada, yada….  You all get it.  This teaching and blogging and life thing is just kinda hard to maintain.
This month’s theme is behavior and classroom management.  So we’re going to get started.

Yes, I DOJO!  And I just started this year which is why I’m asking for your help.  After searching for class dojo ideas (and finding a zillion), I’ve come to believe that the best way to get good, quality ideas is from you.

So here it what I’m proposing...If you know of a blog post, have written one of your own, or know a good pinterest link, please link up and share below.

As I have just started this year, it is very basic for me.  I have 4 behaviors that I award my students for and several negative behaviors that I take points for.  Once my students earn 25 points they get a reward from the Best Bee-havior Catalog (I have a bee theme).  So far, the kids really seem to buy in and I’ve already had most of my class earn 1 or even 2 rewards.

I know there are ways to be in contact with parents, take attendance, use a timer for transitions, etc. I just haven’t had the time to look into it.  So that’s why I need all of you, the best resource I have! 

Link up below with new or old posts.  I can’t wait to see what ideas you have for me!

Thank you fabulous teachers!

Happy teaching!

  1. I made a punch card and my students can save it at 25, 50, 75 or 100. MOst of my prizes are free (no homeowrk pass, show and tell one day, 15 minutes Ipad time...) It also takes them a while if they save so I do not feel like I am always giving away prizes. I have their punch cards on the door and at the end of the day I show the points and can quickly glance if they have reached a "prize" value and ask if they want a prize or to save it. It has been going really well and I think the students like the option of saving or getting a prize. It also helps that I have lots of different prizes that they can look forward to and set a goal to reach it.
    Hope this was helpful! I dont have a blog and I kindof made this up on my own after looking at a variety of ways different people do it, I made my own way!

    1. This is perfect! I really like the idea of them saving up for a bigger reward. I also do free prized, no treasure box here. Thanks so much for sharing.
