Classroom Economy

Each year in January I start using a Classroom Economy Unit to manage behavior.  The students learn all about debits and credits while also learning that responsibility counts.  Every two weeks the students cash paychecks and go shopping in the classroom store.  The parents have been great to donate items for our store.  Since my own children are teenagers, I try to confiscate any unwanted treasures from their rooms when they aren't looking as well.  The photos below are from our first store of the year so the tables are loaded.

I purchased Hope King's Economy Unit from tpt and this year the students have ID's to take to the bank when cashing their checks.
