I have elected to use ClassDOJO as my classroom management plan. This is a program that encourages positive behavior while letting you, the parent, stay connected throughout the day. Each child has their own ClassDOJO avatar and they can earn or lose points for certain behaviors throughout the day. Each point your child earns or loses along with a brief description will be available for you to review throughout the day. You can monitor this by downloading the free ClassDOJO app
As mentioned before, ClassDOJO encourages positive behavior which aligns with our school wide system, SOAR. As Sanford Creek Blue Jays, we SOAR.
S - Safety First
O - Ownership of our School
A - Achieve Success
R - Respect
With SOAR, the students have the opportunity to earn rewards for positive behavior outside of the classroom. The students earn eggs from other members of the staff throughout the day. As the students accumulate more eggs they earn specific rewards and recognition from students, teachers, staff, and administration.
I look forward to our class SOARing from day 1!
I will be sending home more information about how to download this app during the first week of school. If you have any questions, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
