It might be summer break for students nationwide, but the learning never truly stops. ClassDojo chose to focus on promoting a positive activity for children in a weekly series called “Summer Kindness.” The nine week-long program runs from June to mid-August and will feature free inviting activities weekly that focuses on the topic. The lessons are all geared towards school-aged children.
Each week on ClassDojo a new topic will be discussed along with fun, engaging activities and talking points for parents. Some of the items discussed are empathy, values, and leadership. ClassDojo knows that kindness is a multifaceted subject with major subtopics. They went the extra mile on their summer series by covering kindness in depth and making it easy to understand for kids.
For those that are unfamiliar with ClassDojo, it is a communication platform used by 2 in 3 schools. It is an innovative way that allows teachers to communicate with parents about their students. This connection builds empowerment on all sides opening up the channels of conversation. ClassDojo also creates a positive culture with classrooms and schools that welcomes involvement and feedback.
Summer break is usually filled with lazy days, outdoor play, and relaxation, but ClassDojo chose to share the benefits of being kind in their “Summer Kindness” series. A new subject and exciting activities are posted weekly from June to August that encourages positive interaction with others. ClassDojo is definitely an asset to any school or classroom.
In addition to allowing more communication from the classroom, there are many more benefits to the ground-up changes ClassDojo brings to schools. Many parents have busy schedules and feel like they miss out on a lot of their student’s school activities, but with ClassDojo they feel engaged with the community by seeing updates and pictures from their child’s classroom.
