Coming soon to our classroom will be a new classroom economy and each student will have an important job! Their job will be to be the best student they can be!
Students will be paid in Bystrom Bucks. Details will be coming home shortly with students. Posted below you’ll also find the details.
This week, I will be introducing the classroom economy, we’ll be making wallets, and students will be introduced to how the system operates, open accounts and earn a bank book to record their employment, earnings, expenses and more.
At this time I’d also like to plant a seed so that you might put away items for a classroom auction which will take place in June. If you have items that you think students might value, please just tuck them away for the time being and I will start making a collection of auction items in early June. Lisa Murphy has used this program with her grade 4’s for years very successfully and its always a big hit with students. They’ll look forward to saving their money, earning bonuses, participating in random small auctions and specials, being able to purchase school supplies if they’ve lost theirs or save up till the year end auction.
As the coming week unfolds if you or your child have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me!
