Keep “The Dojo Meter” in your Sub Tub or alongside your substitute plans. This behavior clip chart will hold your students accountable for their behavior in your absence.
Personally, I do not want to provide my substitute teacher with my username and password for Class Dojo since I use the messaging feature to communicate with parents.
Using The Dojo Meter will allow your substitute teacher to utilize your existing behavior plan in your absence. Your sub will thank you for this classroom behavior management system as they navigate through the school day.
Included are 7 monster themed clip charts and title card.
As a bonus, I have included 2 parent contact forms that your substitute may send home to communicate student behaviors:
1. Behavior Notice listing specific behaviors that were disruptive throughout the day
2. Positive Feedback Form praising students for stellar behavior
When you return to school the next day, meet with the students and praise good behaviors, award the Dojo points earned and privately meet with those who lost Dojo points to reflect on how to make better choices.
I do hope this system alleviates the dread of coming back to your classroom after an absence…with a not-so-happy report about student behaviors and disruptions.
If you are need of a Sub Tub like the one in the photo, it is also available at my TPT shop:
