Our Classroom Economy

Every day the students show up to “work” they will earn $2. They will have a job that will pay weekly. They may also earn money for good behavior. At the end of the week they will pay $3 in rent. They can be fined for poor behavior, messy desks, or lost supplies. Once a month we will hold a store where they can buy things with their money.
