Ribbit Roos are classroom money with a fun twist and are a great tool for classroom management. I love using these with my students to help illicit good behavior and to quietly teach about responsibility and the importance of saving money. The "one" Ribbit Roo is a frog and the "half a Ribbit Roo" is a tadpole, something that provides a great opportunity for introducing simple fractions at the beginning of the year.
How I use Ribbit Roos:
Ribbit Roos can rewarded for classroom behavior, participation, completing homework, as prizes for winning games or answering questions and so much more!
Once a student has collected 10 Ribbit Roos, they can cash them in for an incentive. Here are some examples:
A prize from our treasure box
A cool pencil
Switch your chair for the teacher chair's for a day
Wear slippers to school
Bring a stuffed animal to school
Math game time
(You can download a free incentive "menu" for your room on my TPT store.)
Ribbit Roos can also be used to buy things in the classroom like replacement pencils, erasers, lost assignments and adding a name on a "no name" paper. This is great for teaching students responsibility and ownership (and they lose a lot less pencils this way!)
