This will be my fourth year of teaching, and I have always pondered the idea of creating specific classroom jobs for students, and tying those jobs to a classroom economy for behavior management. I have finally decided to give it all a go this year, because the money concepts fit with our 2nd grade math standards, and I really think it could provide my kids with a connection to some important life skills. I've thought out the class jobs, how much I will pay for them, and monthly rent. I plan to brainstorm as a class specific reasons students should be fined or given bonuses in addition to their normal pay (this indirectly would lead to a discussion of class rules). Does anyone have any other ideas or insight as to things I should keep in mind as I try this? It honestly seems daunting, and I'm hoping I can keep up with it all and make it a great learning experience for my kids. But anyone who has tried and succeeded (or failed) with this type of system would have valuable insight that I'd love to hear about. Thanks in advance!
