Behavior

In my class, we use ClassDojo.  The kids love it and I do as well!  I am able to give the kids positive reinforcement as well as the corrective behavior if it is needed. With this program the kids earn points for positive things they do, however they may also get points taken away.  Parents can download the app to their phone and check on their child throughout the day to see how they are doing.
