Clip to ScrapBook #4

I had my kids make wallets with construction paper and duct tape. I cut paper in a size good for folding into money sized wallets (depends on what you use for money), laminated them and let the kids tape them up on the sides. Then, they kept them in their desks - I have a pencil box that they kept in the middle of their stuff. If they lost it, they lost it. Rules were no one else should be in anyone's desks, so it was safe enough.

In the beginning, I used it often to reinforce following directions quickly, being on task, or whatever. That tapered off as time went on. If I needed I could walk around with bills and just lay it on desks as needed. I didn't do it all the time after the first couple of months. You have to work in time to do "economy" things - cashing checks, spending money... I made my kids keep a register with how much they earned, received, and spent. I told them I could check them at any time, and I spot checked when they were doing economy stuff.
