In my classroom we use an economy as a method to reward and encourage hard work, good grades, excellent behavior, etc. It is a wonderful way to motivate students and add in real life skills like money management (be sure to see my free Classroom Money Log). However, what do students do with all that money they earn in the classroom economy? Auction time! My students love this auctions and even though I am at a Title I school they always help to bring things in (because heavens knows we teachers can't spend any more out of pocket). This auction note will explain everything to parents.
