I use Decision Dollars as my classroom management system. Every Monday, I give each student three new Decision Dollars and tell them I trust them to make good decisions. Throughout the week, I praise by distributing Decision Dollars and discipline by taking away Decision Dollars. At the end of the week, I open up the Decision Dollar Store and let the students purchase trinkets or exchange their small bills for larger bills to save for another day. It's a great way to reinforce money skills and get the kids excited about following directions!
