This year I tried something new with my class. I felt like the kids that had behavior issues in the past could care less if they missed 5 or 10 minutes of recess. I wanted to come up with something that was highly motivating for them! I created this packet and students now work for Classroom Cash. I almost hated to make a money system because I wanted to teach them that their is more to life than money, but on the other hand, money can really be an effective motivator. With this new method, students are thrown into the real world. Poor choices result in a fine and sometimes, working hard, will earn them a bonus. So far, the kids really like it! I hope you find this helpful! I printed off this packet, except the sheet of Classroom Cash and gave it to students. Every time students earn or spend money, they open their Earnings and Spending packet and record their transactions.
Included: Directions on how I use classroom cash, practice record sheet, record sheets, plus lots of extra if you are using this for the whole school year, a sheet of classroom cash that can be cut apart.
Not included: envelopes- I gave my students two envelopes, one for saving and one for spending. They sort their cash when they receive it.
