{Economy Classroom Economy Middle School Classroom Economy Middle School Economy Middle School Money Hashtag Economy}

This is a simple resource for using a classroom economy system in your upper elementary {4th or 5th} and middle school classroom.

I created this economy to be simple. After modeling and initial creation, the resource will take seconds to effectively use the economy in your (very limited on time) classrooms.

I came up with the idea after I went from 5th and 6th grade to a 7th and 8th grade classroom. I used to be a bank teller, and I think it's SO important that all students head into high school at least knowing how to write a check and keep track of money.

When I taught self-contained elementary, I had a banker job, but this quickly became inefficient and my middle schoolers were just plain smarter than me :).

In middle school, I give them the money, they add it to their balance, and give me the money back almost immediately. The system allows them to purchase items as soon as they are done with their Bell Ringers.

This isn't so much a classroom management strategy (although I definitely give out money to recognize positive behavior) so much as it is a way to get students to write checks and balance checkbooks. And honestly, middle schoolers LOVE food so much, so I wanted a way for them to have access to that in my classroom.
