Keep “The Dojo Meter” in your Sub Tub or alongside your substitute plans. This will hold your students accountable for their behavior in your absence.
Your sub will thank you for this classroom behavior management system as they navigate through the school day.
An EDITABLE version is included so you can determine your own point value system
• 6 monster themed clip charts
• title card
• Behavior Notice
• Positive Feedback Behavior Notice
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.
