My students are expected to follow simple rules or as I like to call them expectations.
1. Be respectful to others
2. Have good manners
3. Listen when someone is speaking
4. Always do your best
I use Class Dojo in my room. The kids are given postive points for good behavior and points are taken away if an expectation is broken. They earn Dojo Dollars for every Dojo point they have. They are responsible for keeping up with those Dojo Dollars and each week they can spend those dollars on different rewards. For example: $5 = bring a stuffed animal to school, $10 = take your shoes off all day, things like that. Parents can sign up with Class Dojo and see the points their child earned or lost at any time. It's a great tool for parent/teacher communication.
