I am changing up Dojo points a little bit. During morning meeting today, the students helped me come up with rewards that they can purchase with their Dojo points. As of Monday, I am resetting the points and everyone will begin at 0. The students were excited about the opportunity to use their points for rewards in class. Although you can’t see your child’s point total, they usually know their total points and can see it when it is displayed on the board.
