'Let your light shine' Matthew 5:16
ClassDojo is a tool that we use here at Hawkesley from start to finish. Because it is a great way to strengthen the home-school connection, celebrate classroom successes, and document student learning over time.
Having all these options built into one handy tool cuts down on the need for multiple products and gives teachers lots of data to inform instruction. Many teachers see ClassDojo as a transformational tool in their efforts toward employing better classroom management. This type of real-time, class wide communication can help make behaviour and learning expectations clearer and concrete for students.
ClassDojo is an online classroom management platform where we can record and track student behaviour, facilitate classroom activities, curate student portfolios, and communicate with parents. Along with points awarded teachers can assign activities to students to submit in the form of videos, text, images, or drawings; once approved, these are documented in portfolios that follow students from year to year. Teachers are also able to add five-minute lessons to the class story; here, topics such as growth mindset and perseverance give students a chance to learn valuable social and emotional skills. On the school-to-home side, parents can create accounts to see behavioural and academic progress as well as to communicate with the teacher or leaders via a messenger tab. Teachers can also choose to share classroom events and photos, giving our families a chance to feel more connected to the classroom.
So, sign up to dojo and start celebrating with us today!
