I love class dojo. I also really like the lessons that they have about empathy and growth mind set etc. Great suggestion! I set up a “6P’s Monopoly” which made a big difference. Basically the 6P’s are my classroom expectations (polite, prepared, prompt, positive mental attitude, produce, participate)... kids who have all their P’s at the end of class get to roll the dice and move their piece around a monopoly board. I replaced the properties with some basic PBIS rewards and then the chance cards are classroom rewards like choose your own seat, front of the line pass, music during work time etc. If the entire class gets to roll they get a class reward

Restorative circles, both proactive and reactionary. When done correctly, it is an instant fix.

Restorative circles are community builders. When proactive, the students are getting to know one another. When reactive, they allow time for the harmed and the one doing the harming to talk and express feelings. If you look up restorative justice, you can get an overview. The key is having the students sit in a large circle and use a talking piece so only one person is speaking at a time. As the facilitator, you ask questions and allow the students the floor.

Have you spoken to them individually?

I find making subtle jokes with the boys about behavior always works in my favor and helps them realize that I do know they’re capable of behaving in a better way. For example - when they are behaving or working, I’m like “waitttt wow what have you done with Bob?! Bob never works this hard (Or is this quiet,etc).” Or “Ohhhh so you cannnn be quiet and do your work.” Now, keep in mind I do teach high school, so this may not be as effective with younger students.

Stop talking. Let students know ahead of time what the rules are and what the consequences for breaking the rules are. I use visual cue cards and a 3 strike policy for most behaviors. Each student gets two silent warnings, and if the behavior is continued, a consequence immediately follows. There is no arguing or pleading with the students, just simple follow through. Some behaviors are explained up front to be a 1 strike behavior. Immediate and consistent follow through of consequences is very effective. For students that have continued issues, we draw up behavior contracts.
