This money will be used for classroom expenses such as rent for the desk and cubby, groceries (cafeteria food), hall passes, health club fee (playground and gym), Internet Café (computers), after school or evening movies, classroom store items, or special privileges.
• Expenses can also be necessary to pay for law infractions such as a littering fine (messy work area or throwing things), speeding ticket (running in the classroom or the halls), and a parking ticket (not being at desk or work area when supposed to be).
• Students will keep track of their income and expenses in a transaction record. They will need to find their new balance after each purchase. They will need to balance their account at the end of the week to see if their money and transaction record match. They will also be introduced to Excel and a money management software (Quicken or Microsoft Money) to see how to keep record of their spending over an extended period of time.
• This unit can be as short as a few weeks or as long as the entire school year, depending on the interest of the teacher and students.
