Classroom Economy Bonuses

Help me give my students a financial literacy bonus for our classroom economy.

My Students

I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost seventy percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.

My Project

This project is to amp up our classroom economy. Students work for a weekly "payment"; they budget and spend monies on new books, book marks, lunch with the teacher, extra recess, homework passes, and maybe...3D Pen time.

Engineering, creative, hands-on, and out of the ordinary ideas will hook and engage your students.

This project will help engage and focus our students on high level goals. 3D pens, filament, and molds will be the start of a new prize that students can budget and work for. A class economy can get old- quickly. This project is to infuse our year-long, financial literacy unit with updated and cutting edge technology!

Project Activity

Donations to this project are now being matched, thanks to support from Charles Schwab Foundation. We believe financial education can open doors and change lives. Together with DonorsChoose, we’ve built a program that supports financial education projects in classrooms across America by championing teachers and giving students the financial knowledge, behaviors, and confidence they need to thrive.

Charles Schwab Foundation also provides tools to help people improve their finances whether they're just starting out or nearing retirement. Our educational resources include lesson plans by teachers for teachers, Money Matters: Make it Count™ for teens, and Schwab MoneyWise, a comprehensive website for people at all stages of life.
