Classroom Dojo -Behavior Management Plan  

Classroom Dojo   Class Dojo

Classroom Dojo is a behavior system where students’ behavior can be monitored throughout the day. Teachers can use an ipad, Smartphone, or computer and continuously adjust a student’s behavior points.  If someone is off task, the teacher can take points away.  If they begin to focus, they get points and move up.  By the end of the day, in theory, you have a measure of how good (or bad) the student’s behavior was.

The students’ points can be projected on our Smartboard so students can actually see how they are being rated – judged – at any given time.  And all the other students can see everyone as well.

Student Motivation 

Students are highly motivated by both their avatars as well as by the points they receive.  Student get to hear a positive "ding" each time a point is given.  In my classroom, we set goals to help students stay motivated.  Kids love seeing their point bubbles raise!  


Classroom Attendance Information  

Tardies  

          Promptness to class is very important as we have a very full schedule in second grade. Students arriving after 7:55 am will be considered tardy and shall report to the office with an adult to sign in. Additionally, please understand that early dismissals count as “tardies” as well. Students leaving before 11:25 am or arriving after 11:25 are to be counted absent for the day.

Attendance/Absences 

School hours are 7:55-2:45. Students should be at school no later than 7:55 in order to start their day. Students may come in the classroom anytime after 7:30 am. Please note that anytime before 7:30 teachers/staff may not be on campus or available to watch students. Students arriving before 7:30 need to enroll in Daycare provided by the school. Regular attendance is essential to succeed in school.  Upon returning to school from an absence, the student must bring a signed note from his or her parent or a doctors note listing the dates and circumstances of the absence(s).  You must send a written excuse for any/all absences from school after returning to class to get this taken care of through Power School. Class will dismiss at 2:40 for K-2 and for 3-5 at 2:45.

 Snack and Lunch

 

Lunchtime is from 11:30-12:10. This year lunch is $2.00 reduced price is $.40 and lunch may be prepaid weekly or monthly.  You may also pay for your child’s lunch at www.lunchprepay.com. Here you will also be able to see what your child is buying. Your child still may bring money daily but the prepay plan eliminates the possibility of them losing their money. Your child will be able to buy ice cream or other snacks from the cafeteria daily.  Milk is $.50 and ice cream is $.50. I have a little refrigerator in the room so if you send juice boxes for lunch we can put them in there to keep them cold. Occasionally we will prepare special snacks associated with learning and I will inform you before if we are going to do so. We will not have a designated snack time during the school day.

Homework 

 

Your child will have homework Monday – Thursday. Homework will be placed in your child’s BLUE folder. Please make sure the folder is returned to school each day. Your child is expected to read 15 minutes each night and record it in their reading log. I will send home weekly books for your child to read, but your child is not limited to only reading those books. This will begin when Guided Reading Begins. Until Guided Reading begins please have your child reading books at home. Homework is work that reviews things we have done on the given day or reviews work or concepts we have covered in the past. For Math homework parents will initial the Mathematics sheet that will be in the BLUE folder as soon as we start math homework this will be turned in on a daily basis. Their Reading homework will be in a baggie with a folder to document your child's reading in a log.

Your child’s safety is very important to me.

Student Birthday Information  

Student Birthday Information

Birthdays are special occasions, and we enjoy celebrating them at school if you would like. We will celebrate them ONLY at lunch time. If you wish to send special treats for birthdays will serve them at lunchtime. If treats are brought after lunch we will wait until the next day, during lunch to serve them. All food for birthdays will have to be commercially purchased and brought in sealed according to Randolph County School Policy. However, it is not necessary to send treats, and whether or not treats are present, we will be sure to take a few moments to honor your child’s special day. I do ask that you please send me a note, e-mail, or call me to let me know you are bringing something before the given day. Thanks in advance.
