Class Jobs PLUS Class Dollars PLUS Student Empowerment!
At the risk of sounding like I’m recalling Camelot, Rainbow City was a real place: my classroom! We had a fully functioning classroom economy that worked! The PLUS that I notice is missing (when teachers talk of class jobs and failed reward systems involving class dollars) is the student empowerment piece. This piece was so important to me and to my students each year for the twenty-five years that I used the system I’m about to share with you. It is the powerful base on which the system is built, and it is the reason for the success of my classroom economy! I am so happy that you are thinking about giving this system a try in your own classroom!

Class Dollars with a rainbow theme (other themes in dollars will be sold separately)
