Am I Too Late to Post This?

Maybe you can use it next year???

Being in year round school {we're in school until July}, this time of the year is very difficult for my students {and me too}. The traditional schools are already out of school for summer, the weather is great, and we all have "summer fever"...which makes for a little stress on my behavior management.  The behavior of my students always takes a slight step back.  Since it takes a step back, I guess I'll have to step.it.up!  Talking to teachers on my team, they told us that at the end of the year, they start a money management system by giving school money out to students who are following the expectations. Then they have a class store/party {we'll have parent volunteers donate items and their time} at the end where they can buy things. HALLELUJAH! It's exactly what we needed {me and my teammate who works on the same track as I}. So, I ran with it and started creating!  I created a packet to explain the money management. I know some of you are out of school already, but print it and save it for next year! This could work for any grade level {I'm using it in 1st grade}.

Here are a few things from the packet...



Instructions: 

 Parent Volunteer Letter:

 Supplies need for end of the year class store:


Signs to help the students navigate {7 total}:


 Receipts from the class store:
 Labels {use Avery 5160}  for your "Wallet" {it's a ziplock your kiddos put their coins in}:








If you would like the labels that go on the ziplock baggies {Wallets}, you must click {here}
I could not get those little guys to format in my packet!

July!?? That is horrible! I would have summer fever as well. I won't tell ya that we have been out for a week already but I will tell ya that I have to go back on July 8 if that makes you feel any better.

Oh my! July?! That seems so long! Today was our "official" last day of school for teachers, the students got out yesterday.

Although you go longer it must be really nice having those extra breaks sprinkled in throughout the year!

What a great idea! I love how you get the parents to help so you don't have to do or buy it all!

I love the idea of an economy classroom, but I must admit I'm afraid to set it all up and then it not work out for myself. I use a punch card system, lottery ticket, and bingo style reward system. Check it out www.mrsnarramoresworld.blogspot.com
