Looking for a new way to re-vamp your classroom management system? Well implementing a classroom economy is a fun and educational way to promote making good choices while teaching about money management. Students earn money through a classroom job and making good choices on a daily basis. Then students have opprotunties throughout the year to buy things at a classroom store or at a classroom auction (which is a lot of fun)! It is amazing how much community cash can motivate students!
Another bonus to implementing a classroom economy is that you can train and "hire" students to do much of the upkeep paper work. I created Accountant, Banker, Landlord, and Police Officer job positions in my classroom and the kids love it!
This product is full of printable items you can use to implement an economy in your classroom!

I have been a teacher in my mind for as long as I can remember! So many times, I fought with my sister and her friends to listen to me teach little lessons and grade fake papers. "School" was my favorite thing to play! Now I get to play real "school" everyday! I have been a "real" teacher for four years. My second home is in a bright, colorful third-grade classroom in Iowa full of bright, colorful little kiddos.
I believe to teach you have to flexible, take risks, and try new things! I am always looking for new ideas so I have fallen in love with Teacher's Notebook! I also love creating new things and that fact that I can now share them! Please stop at my shop at look around. If nothing else, download all the FREEBIES and follow me!
