Class Dojo in 5th

Does anyone use Class Dojo in fifth grade? I am moving up to fifth from second and have used Class Dojo for the past few years for behavior and also parent communication. Students choose coupons for the points they earn.
Do you think this would work in fifth?
I will be changing the coupons so they will be geared more towards my fifth graders.

I do use it for communication, and parents LOVE it for that. I'm not using it for behavior...but I think if you made the coupons something "good" they would love it.

What I like

I really like the parent communication part of it. I used Remind also last year and Iím just going to use Dojo for communication next year instead of both. Dojo doesnít limit your message to a certain amount of characters when sending to the whole group. Thereís also the ability to send pictures, files or videos individually or you can post them to your classroom. Hope this helps!

Wouldnít it just be the same? Iím truly open, and believe my new coworkers are going to use it, but just want to know the difference and if itís worth it.

Yes. I've used it with 4th, 5th, AND 6th graders. The buy in is different, but it still is there if you make it worth their time. Remember to tie your rewards and consequences to the points.

Yes, I used DOJO and a clip chart last year in 5th and will do the same this year. I cannot leave DOJO up all day, so I use a clip chart as well for visuals.It worked for me.
