Lyon's $$$...I Want Some!!

Lyon's Money has been a BIG hit in first grade.  I used this system in 3rd and thought I'd try it out with the younger kids.  Students get paid for weekly classroom jobs (ex. line leader, caboose, lunch bin carrier, errand runner, etc).

They can also lose money for not completing homework or for inappropriate classroom behavior.  At the end of the month the Lyon's Store opens and kids browse and shop!  This is a great way for students to practice counting and to make difficult decisions on if they should buy or save.

Most of the items for the store are bought at the Dollar Store but kids go wild!
