Class Dojo for Classroom Management

I came across Class Dojo last week (don't ask me where, I'm lucky I can remember where I live at this point). Let me just say that I am SO excited for the school year just to finally have a system to track behavior - both good and bad. is a free service which lets you acknowledge positive behavior in real time. A demo class is provided for you to explore the features right away.

Each student appears in the class with a little monster avatar
Behaviors (good and bad) can be assigned by clicking student, selecting the behavior, and the points accumulated by each student are prominently displayed.
Inputting each class (every student for me) can be a chore. We haven't been provided with class lists yet, so it seems daunting for me at this point. I hope copy and paste will be a good friend to me in ClassDojo.

You can also give students access to their individual accounts so they can track their points at home. I'll be testing that out before doing so. Also, a rewards section looks like is in the works.
