This year we are using a classroom Economy by implemtenting class dojo! Students will earn an income for things such as handing in their homework on time, a signed agenda, consistently completing assignments, having clean and effecting work area, seat pushed in, Taking out writing folder at appropriate times, turning off electronics the first time asked and doing it appropriately, bonus work, appropriate behavior and acts of kindness.
Each student will recieve their very own credit card. Each 25 points on class dojo will equal 1$ for their credit card. For example, 300 points will give them 12$. Every Friday they will have the opportunity to either cash in for something on the prize wall or save their money for a more expensive prize.
Prize examples: stickers, fancy pencils, piece of candy, pick your seat, lunch with the teacher. etc.
There will also be a VIP kid! This student will be chosen based on appropriate behavior throughout the week and points! The VIP kid will get to sit at their own VIP desk, have their own luggage to carry their supplies in, pack up first, have their shoes off, work on the carpet if they would like, be a line monitor, and get a special pencil.They will be reconized by getting to wear a VIP kid badge for the week! Each Monday a new VIP will be chosen!
There will be expenses that they may have to pay. The expenses are dirty work area, late homework, lost pencil, pencil sharpener, water break, bathroom break, behavior fine, talking at inappropriate times fine, extra paper, missing agenda, AND if they lose their credit card.
I am excited to begin our Classroom Economy this year! Students will incorporate math skills, daily living skills and money skills using this!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
