In my classroom we use class money as a reward system for students to stay motivated, they earn class money by completing homework, classwork, and by keeping up with any other responsibility the student may have. The money that my students earn can be spent at the student store run by me. At this student store they are able to purchase passes to use centers (ex. Art Center) as well as pencils, erasers, other school supplies that their parents may not be able to provide. My students love getting rewarded school supplies. All prizes are earned by demonstrating their hard work whether it is getting things done, following along during lessons or simply showing kindness in our community. By using this prize system in my classroom I am able to help motivate my students as well as provide them with school supplies their parents were not able too. All of this while learning the value of hard work because they see the students who work hard are then paid more for completing all assignments which allows them to buy more at the store. My students get fueled up by little things that may not seem like much to others but really mean the world to them.
