My classroom management will have a few different elements tomonitor different aspects of the classroom makeup. The base of ourclassroom will be a token economy for daily maintenance. I will have achart with each student having color cards for individual daily behaviorincidents. We will also have a treasure chest that will be rewarded eachweek. The students can get their names into the drawing in a fewdifferent ways. Some examples are being caught doing something
“right”, remaining on green for the entire week, receiving a compliment
from another teacher, as a table group earning positive compliments,among other good choices.The token economy in my classroom is based on every studentbeginning each day with a clean slate. Each student will have $1.00, inplay money, on their desk each morning. They will be able to receivemore money throughout the day and they can lose money for poorchoices. Each child will be responsible for their own money. At the endof each month I will have a class store where the kids can purchase smallitems such as erasers, pencils, stickers and book marks. There will alsobe some larger items that will require they save their money for a fewmonths. This behavior model will also be utilized to teach the studentsabout simple money management skills.
