In two weeks I will start my new job as a VPK teacher. This isnt "my first time to the rodeo" as I was a Pre-K teacher in Illinois before I moved. In my old class I used coins that could be earned or taken away and then used as money to buy from the school store about once a month. Im not big on the tickets - I used that one year and always found myself saying "take out a ticket"...didnt like that. While I do like my coin idea I'm considering something possibly less tedious for me...ESPECIALLY getting rid of the school store/treasure box idea. It tends to get expensive and I have to remember to do it. If you have any ideas please share!
