Class Jobs with a Token Economy System! Editable!
It’s here! Class jobs with salaries and fines! You can now change the names and responsibilities and the amount that you fine. Plus you have the ability to create your own with your clip art and fonts!
This is such an effective system that actually puts the “policing” in the hands of your students. Not all jobs have the ability to fine and not all jobs have the same salary. All students would start with the same number of tokens. I would start with 10. The job cards come with the job title, the responsibilities and a salary. There are four different forms with different salaries, depending on what you choose to use as your tokens. I have used play money (pennies) and I have also spray painted lima beans gold and used those. You’ll notice in each set I have noted the salary as follows:
Salary: 3 (you can add you own token)
Salary: 3 beans
Salary: 3 pennies
Salary: blank so that you can determine what works for you.
There are over 30 jobs for your students to choose from as well as a tracking sheet for you to know who has had which job. The tracking sheet just needs you to add the names of your students and then you can either print the sheet or keep it right on your computer. Also included are I.O.U forms for student who may become in debt, as well as a “HELP WANTED NOW!” sign in 4 different forms. You can buy pockets in chevron or polka dots on Amazon so my sign will match your pockets if you choose to go that route! See preview.
I have used this system with first and third graders but could easily be used in other elementary grades.
The jobs are 3 x 5 index card size and can fit perfectly into your library pockets that you have labeled with your students’ names. These pockets can then go on a bulletin board for the entire year. All you have to do is change the jobs! Also included is a “How to” set up an effective system for your classroom. Below are the jobs included in this set:
lunchroom monitor (you could have more than 1)
head coat checker
green team (you could have more than 1)
maintenance engineer 2
table captain (6 if you have 6 tables)
prayer leader (for those in parochial schools)
assistant coat check
**Don't forget that when you purchase a product from TPT, and you rate it, you get TPT credits---That means dollars for YOU!!!
