    Class Dojo

    For Students:  If you come into my classroom for daily instruction: 

    You are going to want to know all about of Class Dojo. This is a point system that I am utilizing to encourage appropriate behavior. You will receive or lose points depending on their behavior. You can redeem points on Fridays for prizes. These prizes and points are listed below.

    For Guardians:  If your child is going to be receiving daily instruction in my classroom:

    They will be using a program called Class Dojo. This is a point system that I am utilizing to encourage appropriate behavior. Your child will receive or lose points depending on their behavior. They can choose to redeem points on Fridays for prizes. These prizes and points are listed below.

    Class Dojo does have an app that you can download onto your smart phone or tablet if you so wish. This app will allow you to see the daily points that your child is accumulating. For example, if your child is being especially helpful and receives extra points for the day or if your child forgets his/her homework and loses points: you will be able to see those points and the reasoning on the Class Dojo app. The other nice thing about the app is that you can text message me through the app (and vice versa). If your child is going to be in my classroom on a daily basis then you should have already received a letter from me that supplied you with an access code for Class Dojo. If you are in need of this code please feel free to contact me at krodman@vbschools.net or call 419-299-3384 ext. 323.

    • What we are doing in ELA class.

      We are continuing to work on writing complete paragraphs with Paragraph of the Week (POW). The students are completing this individually with limited teacher support. 

      The students have began reading the novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Wonder is a fictional story about a 10 year old boy named Auggie, whom was born with a facial deformity. The novel follows Auggie's life as he enters public school for the first time, deals with bullying and finds strength in friendship.

      The students are creating animated Youtube videos that summarize the first chapter of Wonder. The scripts will be written and spoken by the students. This will help the students to develop writing skills, verbal skills and to better comprehend the events in the novel. These videos will be posted on Moodle as they are created. 

      Spelling Tests are on Thursdays and retakes are on Fridays.
