Do you dojo? I discovered Classdojo late last year and used it a little bit with my 8th graders. This year I started the year with it, and it has been awesome! The majority of my parents are connected and get real time access to what is going on in my classroom. I am easily able to communicate using the messenger component and parents can see points their student is receiving for positive and negative behaviors. I have also used messenger to communicate with parents about how to work out homework problems, it's great!

At the end of each week the student who has earned (and kept!) the most points is declared the weekly winner. On Mondays I reset the points and allow students to cash out. They can purchase items from my prize store with their points. I keep a tally logged so that they only lose the points that they spend. They really enjoy this and look forward to Mondays. :)
