Using this Classroom Economy - Marketplace & Currency Reward Pack:
As your students complete jobs or display positive behaviours in your classroom, they can be rewarded with Petbucks. These will vary depending on the age of your class.
Examples of behaviours that could earn petbucks include (but are not limited to):
Helping to clean up the classroom
Helping a friend
Being on task
Once your students have earned enough Petbucks, they may purchase a Reward Voucher. Included in the pack is a series of cards and a marketplace poster.
Rewards include “Computer Time”, “Sitting With A Friend”, “Cuddle Time With Your Teacher’s Pet Creature” and many more. Additionally, we’ve included blank templates for you to create your own rewards.
Your Teacher’s Pet Market
We recommend creating an event where students can spend their Pet Bucks, similar to a market. This can be done daily or weekly.
When your students purchase a reward voucher they need to cash in their Petbucks and begin earning Pet Bucks again. Your students can decide when they would like to use their reward voucher.
If you wish to expand the use of Pet Bucks, include giving students daily jobs where they can earn more. Jobs such as cleaning the whiteboard or tidying the classroom are great examples of this.
In this resource, we have also included foldable wallets which your students can fold and glue these as a craft activity and then use them to store their Pet Bucks during the day. This also helps instill a sense of care and responsibility.
