    Classroom Economics: We use a money management system in our classroom called “Check Us Out” that incorporates math in a fun and educational way!
     

    How it works:

    ·         Students are paid $100 per month. This is the base pay for being a 2nd grade student in Ms. Young’s class.

    ·         This money has to be used to pay any "fines" that the children may incur - these fines are part of the consequences to our class responsibilities, which the children help form at the beginning of each year. If a responsibility is broken during the day, the child must pay his/her fine by writing a check at the beginning of recess to give to the teacher. 

    ·         Students may use accumulated money to make purchases from the Rewards List every other Friday, or at the class store once per month.

     

    Consequences:

    ·         Break one responsibility- pay the fine.

    ·         Break two responsibilities- pay both fines, conference with the teacher, and a fine notice is sent home.

    ·         Break three or more responsibilities- pay all fines, conference with the teacher, and a fine notice is sent home.
