My best classroom idea of the day was...using Class Dojo as a writing process monitor. 

 I created a class in class dojo for all of my writing students.  When they completed a part of the writing process they came up and gave themselves a point.  This point let me know which step they were on in the process and what day they completed that step.  It has been a huge success for me and my monitoring and the students love seeing their points increase with each step.  I do not have rewards attached to this specific class, but that could also be an option for extra motivation.  

What is your best idea of the day...please share?
