Today was the first day of Term 1. It was so lovely to see everyone!
We were introduced to Class Dojo. You may ask what is Class Dojo? We are here to explain it to you.
Here goes … Class Dojo helps teachers positively encourage students in class. Today we discussed the skills we want to work positively too. We had a conversation about why the chosen skills will help everyone have a successful school year in 2/3K. For each ‘positive skill’ shown students receive Class Dojo points for them but if they demonstrate a ‘needs work skill’ they will lose Class Dojo points.
WHOLE CLASS POINTS:
When we work together as a team, we will receive whole class points, so we can work towards a class goal.
We have table points which help encourage us with teamwork. When we work together with our table buddies we will receive table points for different skills.
Class Dojo is used to:
•Encourage any skill, rule, behaviour or school value
•Encourage students with positive feedback. It awards students with feedback for skills like “Working hard”, “Showing growth mindset”
•Encourage students with areas to work on example, “Put your hand up instead of calling out”, “Not on task”
This is the screen that students get to see throughout the day with their points. Each student has a monster avatar.
