I use the following “Basset Bucks” along with a modified Classroom Economy framework.
I say modified in the sense that my students receive coins (real pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters) and the enclosed “Basset Bucks” as rewards for positive behaviors (Subtracted for negative behaviors).
Weekly, my students count and cash out (or save up) to “buy” items out of my “Basset Boutique” (Hooray vocabulary!).
I like this idea because it helps students reinforce math skills while being rewarded for positive behavior.
