A great pack for creating a simple, efficient and fun classroom economy.
Included in this pack are two files. One file contains lesson plans for the creation of class money and for a class Market Day which includes a design task, collaborative creation and reflection on the economics of their mini-business.
The other file includes editable templates for jobs that suit your class, bank recording sheets, rewards choices, and a template for a class auction. The jobs I have included help to keep our classroom tidy, organised and build independent responsibility amongst the students - they actually make my job easier!
I have used all of the resources included in my own Grade 3/4 class and have seen the same system used in a Grade 5/6 classroom. It is simple to establish and most aspects are run independently by students.
I aim to use resources that are simple, not overly burdensome on my time and energy and are student-driven. The students love having the classroom economy and it is a simple way to build financial responsibility and the classroom community.
This product has been designed to meet the Design, Creativity and Technology curriculum requirements for Level 3 & 4 for the Victorian Curriculum and the Australian Curriculum.
