Big Bucks

In this day and age of teaching, we as educators spend far too much time dealing with negative behaviour. I use my Big Bucks system to focus on the positive and use positive peer pressure to correct the negative. It is simple and can be moulded to fit your needs. It requires no paperwork or record keeping and can be used in your class or school-wide. I would not teach without it!

I give virtual money for behaviours I like and take for the behaviours I want to eliminate. Kids love $$ and don’t want to have to pay me! I have an auction twice a year for them to have spending opportunities (donated stuff), and I sell simple things like activity time and raffle tickets (for some small items or a bundle of little items I have collected from bargain bins in local stores).

It does not cost much to run, and parents will help you. Hope this helps.
