What a super bunch of 5th years I have – it’s a small group but they are all working well on our topic of ‘morality’. Adam, Auguste, Cormac, Darragh, Dylan, Leigh, Jamie, Joe, Kate, Niamh, Sean, Shane and Simon are proving to be exceptional in terms of hardwork, participation, manners and more – just look at their amazing report after one full week of school:
5th Year Religion First Week
Super job, 5th years!! Now let’s hope it stays at 100%!
I am delighted to see 3A2 again this year after a very good year with them in second year last year. After the first full week back at school, let’s have a look at their Class Dojo report:
3A2 Religion First Week
Not bad, but I know it can be better – let’s hope for the best for the end of September! Good luck 3A2.
I am delighted to be taking on a new Religion class this year – 2A1. After one week, I have formed a very favourable impression of them all. Their Class Dojo report reflects this too – have a look!
2A1 Religion First Week
Super job, 2A1!! Keep it up – let’s go for 100% by the end of September!
Thanks to the inspiration of Miss Cullen’s blog in St Oliver’s in Drogheda, we here at Franciscan College Gormanston are going to give Class Dojo a go. At the moment, 2A1, 3A2 and one 5th year Religion class are involved.
Class Dojo is a great tool for tracking student progress in terms of participation, homework and behaviour. At the end of each day, students are awarded positive or negative points and these points are combined to give the class an overall positive or negative rating. Each student can track his or her own individual points at home (and no-one else’s) and also see how the whole class is faring. It is also possible to email a report card to the students’ parents at regular intervals.
At the end of each month, I will post the overall chart for each class on this blog. Since we are just starting this new initiative, I am going to post the chart for each class at the end of this first full week back at school. (After that, I will post the overall report monthly.) Class Dojo will hopefully be a fun way to keep students motivated and involved in their own progress. Let’s hope it works as well here as it seems to be in St Oliver’s.
