Letter 1:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to write home today to tell you about ClassDojo, a new teacher tool I will be using to help build your student’s learning habits and boost classroom engagement.

ClassDojo allows me to track student behavior and learning skills throughout the day!

One of the great features of ClassDojo is that it allows me to send you a “behavior and skills report” every Friday by email. I can also send you an invitation to the site through email. My hope is that this will bring you and me closer together and help you better understand the progress of your student on a week to week basis.

For homework tonight I’ve asked your student to have you fill out this form so I can get your email address. Thank you very much!

Best wishes,

(your name)

Letter 2:

4th Grade Parents & Students:

This year, the fourth grade teachers are trying a new classroom management tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a web based program which allows teachers to track students’ behaviors (positive AND negative) easily and efficiently. The program is based on points, and students can be given positive points for things like being on task, being respectful, participating, or working hard. On the other hand, points can be taken away if students are off task, talking out, or unprepared. Our goal is to fully implement the program right away, but please bear with us as we are learning as we go!

After students have been added to the system, there is a student access code we will give to each student so that they can log on to the website. On the site, they are able to see how many points they have, which positive behaviors were noted, and which negative behaviors they need to work on. Quarterly, students will be able to “cash in” on their points for different prizes and coupons. (Might be a great place to add your goals/porcedures) One of the greatest features of ClassDojo is that it allows us to send parents a “behavior and skills report” every Friday by e-mail. All you need to do is use the parent access code to get signed up. Our hope is that this will help you better understand the progress of your student’s behavior on a week-to-week basis.

Please contact us if you have any questions!

~4th Grade Team
