    Classroom Money
    By Kelly

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have a "money" system similar to the bank system. I give students a medium size ziploc bag with their name on it at the beginning of the year. I have made and photocopied classroom money (in denominations of $10, $20, $50, $100). Students earn money when homework is done, agendas are signed, etc. I also use the money in a game show type game when we review material. When students reach $1000 they turn the money in to me to buy a prize from my prize bin. The $1000 gets recorded on a large chart-paper graph of "Money in the Bank". I have a bigger prize for the student with the most money at the end of the year. The kids LOVE the money system and it's great for counting too.
