Looking to re-vamp your classroom management system? Well implementing a classroom economy is a fun and educational way to promote making good choices while teaching students about money management. Students earn money through a classroom job and making good choices on a daily basis. Then students have opportunities throughout the year to buy things at a classroom store or at a classroom auction (which is a lot of fun)! It is amazing how much community cash can motivate students!
Another bonus to implementing a classroom economy is that you can train and "hire" students to do much of the upkeep paper work. I created an Accountant, Banker, Landlord, and Police Officer positions in my classroom and the kids love it!
This product is full of printable items you can use to implement an economy in your classroom!
