I am so excited to be your student's first grade teacher!!
One of the things we will be using this year is Class Dojo. This is a behavior management system that reinforces positives behaviors, responsibility, and life skills. Students receive positive and negative points throughout the day. They will be tracking their points on a 100's chart. They get reward coupons when they reach 50 points, then again at 100 points. (To start the year we will be going to 20 points, then again to 50 points). Students will pick out coupons on Fridays and they can be redeemed at any time.
Coupon rewards are as follows:
50 points- wear a hat, chew gum in class, positive note home, homework pass, bring a stuffed animal or show and tell item, use a pen, 5 extra dojo points, no shoes in class, snack in class.
100 points- popsicle at lunch, pick a seat or sit with a buddy, use teacher chair, lunch with the teacher, or lunch with friends in the classroom.
