Need Some Ideas

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I want to start using classroom money with my third graders . I want to make my own so that the kids can't bring in play money from stores to add to their earnings. I want to call it something cute but i can't think of anything. I thought of using my last name but it starts with an "h" so I can't think of anything. Anyone have any ideas?

Cool Cash

Our school uses "Cool Cash". Each teacher uses a specific color paper. We just designed it on the computer. It's worked for a few years now. It's cool to get Cool Cash!

School Mascot

When I was in elementary one of my teachers did the same thing! I loved it and still remember it! She used our school mascot which was a cougar and called them "Cougar Bucks". Maybe you could use your school's mascot.

We also use our school mascot (A manatee), so we have manatee money.
I made it myself by going out and buying a manatee stamp. This went in the middle of the rectangle pieces of paper, and then I added numerical values to the 4 corners like real money. It was cute, but hard to keep on top of. This year I'm trying "manatee checkbooks" instead!!

themed bonus bucks

Clip to ScrapBook #5

I have a tree theme in my classroom, so I designed my bonus bucks with a money tree graphic on them and printed them on green paper. This year I am thinking about making different values on them and printing them on different colors of paper (kind of like monopoly). Feel free to use mine as a template and it change it to go with your theme or just use them as is!

Printmaster and they have outlines of money. I type in Behavior Bucks. They have increments of 1, 10, and 20 dollars. I let the kids trade up to a bigger bill when they have 10 or 20. You could also put your face on the middle of the bill.

I actually use the template that you would use for making business cards. I then make 1 copy of 10 and photocopy it on to cardstock and then cut them out.

I also stamp my name on the back of each card so that they cannot copy more of their own.

Character Cash
Old 07-18-2006, 02:22 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #7

Our 3rd grade classes uses Character Cash bc the kids receive it for exhibiting the character traits. We used money from our manipulative kit but printed them on green paper and laminated them. I never had a kid try to use their own bucks. Also by using the same bucks as a grade level, other teachers could give my kids bucks when they see them in the hall, etc.

Thanks so much for sharing! These are beautiful... I plan to use them with my 7th grade Spanish class, as they are having a hard time with motivation...

Thanks so much. I'm a new teacher, straight out of collage, in a resource room in a high school grade 7 to 12. I really like the tree theme and will maybe make something like that on my walls. I think it is a wonderful idea. Thanks so much. Sharing helps out newbies like me!

I also have a tree theme in my classroom, and I like how you incorporated your bonus bucks using this same theme. I would like to see your bonus bucks template, but I am unable to open this document. Could you send it another way? Thanks.

There is a teacher store called Every Season in TX. They sell fake money that looks and feels like real money. I have to sign it cause the kids will try to duplicate it. I also call mine COOL CASH! They love it! Here is the link.
