Class Dojo for Behavior Management

Improving student behavior in an urban 5th grade math classroom

ClassDojo is a free behavior tracking system. I use it everyday to give students feedback on how they're meeting academic and behavioral expectations. As students are given postiive points or "needs work" points, a sound beeps and the entire class hears and sees that a student is being given feedback. Just as with behavior narration, students become more aware about their personal behaviors, following the expectations as they see them reiterated through behavior points. Their scores carry through with them to each class, culminating in a report at the end of the day that goes home to the students' parents. This allows parents to stay in the loop with how students are working and behaving at school.

Student Data
 
 
This is a sample of a ClassDojo daily student report, highlighting both the positive behaviors and needs work behaviors of a student. By both highlighting specific behaviors and giving an overall percent positive, students get a daily summary of their performance to share with their parents, allowing them to reflect and goal set for the next day.

Here is a short parent letter sent home to parents explaining the ClassDojo system. It's important to get parent investment, as students will be more invested as well.

Carpet Transitions
Improving student behavior in an urban 5th grade math classroom

Carpet Transitions is a process where students walk from their desks to the carpet (or another location) for the next activity. Expectations and directions are explicitly laid out, and we evaluate how our transitions go. As we perform these transitions more and more, we emphasize our efficiency and use of our time. Through this process, we make the most of our learning time and ensure students transition safely.

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Peer Learning
Improving student behavior in an urban 5th grade math classroom

Through peer learning, students work together to practice skills and complete their independent practice. Through constant positive narration and coaching over best practices in peer learning, students are developing the skills needed to successfully collaborate and learn from other students. 

 
Academic Culture
Synergy
Improving student behavior in an urban 5th grade math classroom

The neighborhood where my students come from can be full of negativity. My students need to learn how to support each other and accept the mistakes that come with the natural process of learning. Synergy is a strategy that is a core element of my blended model; it defines and reinforces the behaviors that successful teams use to work together to overcome a problem. Synergy has four basic expectations: 1) Push each other's thinking; 2) Share the load; 3) Use Accountable Talk; and 4) Move with speed. I use these expectations in a quick evaluation of each group every time we do group work, and the "winning group" receives a small prize, which reinforces my academic and social expectations and incentivizes friendly competition.
