 "Class DOJO....Oakley's School-Wide Management System"

Class DOJO is an exciting management system our students are intrigued by! This system is designed to ENCOURAGE the very BEST from our students. Teachers are using this system to track students participation, daily social behavior, and all around attitude pertaining to their school day.  I urge you to include DOJO into your daily school day dialogue. Simply ask your child how many DOJO points have they earned thus far.  Please use your parent codes to track your child daily!

about what they have to say.

Cooperative Learning & Collaborative Practices
 are Essential to Learning!
 
There will have to be a heightened level of control, collaboration, and cooperation that will need to exist in an inspired classroom. Please adhere to all expectations so that our learning is guided smoothly.
Using technology is a PRIVELEDGE not a RIGHT!!!

Classroom & Technology Norms...
 
*STAY ON TASK!!!
 
*Take turns discussing content material and using technology accessories and tools. NEVER mishandle the technology tools!!!
 
*Listen carefully and occasionally use reflective listening to be sure
you understand what your team member means.
Stay together until everyone is done.
 
*Do not use "put downs" or discouraging words.
 
*Disagree with ideas without using harsh words. Instead, use phrases like, "Could we look at it another way?", "I'm not sure I understand,"
 and "I don't think that's right."
 
*Praise each other's ideas!
 
*STUDENTS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ADHERE TO THESE NORMS WILL NOT BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE THE TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM!
DON'T MAKE ME PULL THE PLUG:)
