I love my classroom management system. It works so well for me. I use the Lakeshore money. I even use time sheets.
This is how it works. I have a price list. One list shows how to make money (h.w., classroom job, etc.,). While the other list shows how to lose money & go into debt (bad attitude, being off-task, etc.,).
They keep track of everything with their time sheet. Everyday, they have a list of items to track (See time sheet below). In order to get paid, they have to present their time sheet on Friday. If they lose it, I do not pay them. It is their responsibility to keep up with it for the entire week. Once they turn the time sheet in on Friday, I have them fill out the amount. I then have them write themselves a check that they are able to cash on Friday. This system works on their math skills, their behavior, and their responsibility. It helps them take ownership of their own education & behavior.
If you would like a copy of the time sheet and the price list, email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
