ClassDojo Points

Dear Students and Parents,

Here is the Classdojo point system and how it works!

Students are seated in tables 1-4 in our classroom. They can earn teamwork points as a table, or individual points for themselves.

Friday Rewards:

1st Friday of the month- Students need 5 points for stickers

2nd Friday of the month-  Students need 10 points for candy ( all candy will be given at the end of the day and taken home. Candy will not contain any nuts.)

3rd Friday of the month- Students need 15 points for prizes (pencils, erasers, bracelets, mini notebooks, etc.)

4th Friday of the month- Students need 20 points for the  PBIS celebration!

Special Classes Rewards:

Students can earn up to two points based on behavior in gym, music, art, media center, and science enrichment.

Positive Points:

Students can earn points by: helping others, staying on task,  turning in homework, staying quiet in the hallway,  listening to the teacher, working hard etc.

Negative Points:

Students will minus a point by: talking out of turn, off task, talking in the hallway, disrupting others, not listening to instruction, calling names, being disrespectful, inappropriate language, physical fighting, and bullying others.

Students who use inappropriate language will lose 10 points.

Note: Students who engage in physical fighting or bullying will lose all of their points and will be set back to zero.  I do not tolerate this type of behavior. They have a chance to earn the points back starting the next school day.

You will receive an invitation to view Classdojo at Parent Teacher conferences in November, so that you can see your child’s behavior points at home!

Thanks for all of your support!
