Ready to boost the respect your students have for their classroom, increase the ownership they have for their learning space, and connect classroom jobs to the real world? This Classroom Economy Toolkit has everything you need.

This toolkit includes everything you need to set up engaging classroom jobs that allow students to independently take ownership of their learning space by helping with meaningful daily tasks that make them feel like an important and valuable member of your classroom community.

After completing job applications, students can be hired for classroom jobs that require detailed responsibilities. They get paid a salary for each job, which they can save up or spend to purchase class passes that unlock special in-class experiences.

This system has been a game changer in hundreds of classrooms when it comes to maximizing the responsibility students take for maintaining an organized learning space. The real-world connections this toolkit brings to your classroom can help boost student engagement.

To read all the details about how I use this toolkit in my own classroom, read my blog post A Classroom Economy Students and Teachers Love.
