Checking System

During math class, the students are given the opportunity to earn money.  $5.00 for good behavior and $5.00 for being prepared for class.  At the end of each month, I open Weber-Mart, where the students can spend their earned money on various items.  Weber-Mart takes place in my classroom and usually occurs on a Friday.

 

For those students, who choose to misbehave, he or she is asked to write a check.  I have taught them how to write a check as well as balance a checkbook.  Students are asked to carry their checkbook with them on a daily basis. 

Students cannot earn money if they are absent and/or forget their checkbook in their locker.

 Please, discuss with your child the importance of balancing a checkbook and making good decisions in regards to behavior and being prepared for class.
