Peterson Economy

Since my first year teaching, 12 years ago, I have implemented a classroom monetary system to help achieve a management system that has been very successful for me.  At the end of each quarter I hold an auction with $20 worth of items from the dollar store.  In typical auction form, the kids can pair up with another student who possesses a similar amount of cash.   The kids love it!  Then I collect all leftover money and then they start fresh with the new quarter.  Below I included the “Gives” and “Gets” the class abides by.  If you have any questions I would love to share my struggles and successes.
