We will be using ClassDojo in Kindergarten SEL this year for our behavior management system! Unlike the traditional uses in their daily classroom (to share and communicate with parents at home), we will be using it in our class only, as a method to earn points and rewards based on their demonstration of desired skills (i.e. participating, being a good friend, good listening, following directions, working hard, etc.). Because we meet only one time per week, it will take students a long time to earn rewards such as- wear a funny hat, pick a brain break, special pencil, sticker, lunch with Mrs. Cicchino, etc.- so it is used primarily to provide real time feedback for behavior and social skills. The program "gamify's" the process and the kids are already loving it!
