Product Description
Teach your students financial responsibility and banking skills while reinforcing your classroom management!

How Does It Work?
Provide your students with a Class Cash paycheck just for attending school. Let your students take true ownership of the Class Cash system by having them design the cash used in your classroom OR provide them with predesigned cash to get the ball rolling even faster. Provide students with additional cash incentives for completing work on time and displaying exemplary behavior to reinforce your classroom management. Deepen students' understanding of money by teaching them to balance their cash using the Class Cash Register. Makes for great math reinforcement by adding deposit and withdrawal to students' vocabularies! Strengthen responsibility by having students pay rent every month. Add to the mix entrepreneurship skills by allowing students to hold their very own Class Cash Auction where they can sell gently used toys or artwork they've created to earn even more cash from their classmates.

How's This Different Than Other Classroom Monetary Systems?
Class Cash takes into account student ownership. By allowing students to not only create and design your class cash, but to also earn additional cash by selling unused toys/games/artwork at the Class Cash Auction, you're immersing them in a simulated economy that is driven by their choices and actions. Class Cash mimics real world economics and what better way for students to learn the value of a dollar than in an educational environment. I love Class Cash because it allows students to take risks and make mistakes now rather than later when monetary consequences can have a true impact on their life.

Want to implement a classroom monetary system but missed beginning of the year setup? Don't worry! You can start your Class Cash system after returning for second semester.
