Activity Using Classdojo
The activity I decided to provide focuses on positive behaviors instead of negative!
- utilize your classroom's smart board.. if available!
- award students for being on task! Fun Fact: Dojo makes a sad sound when points are lost and this definitely catches the children's attention.
As an ABA therapist, transitioning into different tasks is a very important part of our programs for our children! This is absolutely great for helping with transitions.
- As soon as one student is prepared for the next activity...
- Give them a point! All the kids catch on very quickly and are extremely motivated to do better!
