Science Class DoJo

I am excited to share our new Science Star award, Class DoJo. With over 500 students that I service, I needed to find a positive behavior program that works. It is a positive behavior program where each child is given an avatar that represents them during Science time. I can give positive and negative points for class noise level, participation, and even on task behaviors. By the end of the class our goal is to have 75% of the class at obtaining positive behavior points. For each 75%-94% the class will be awarded one Science Star. If the class has over 95% of the class getting positive points the class will earn 2 Science Stars. The goal is to get to 10 points for a fun Science reward such as an extra cool experiment or special activities. I can't wait to start it this week with our new units. This program is free and is super easy to set up. You can put it up on a Smartboard or projector. You can use your I Pad to walk around and award points or give reminders of what good behavior looks like. You can also use it on your I Phone. Wish I had one... all my kids do, mom gets the cheapo one. What we don't do for our children...I will let you know how it goes.
