This is posted in the room for students to reference. Notice that they have to pay bills each month ($50)! Students keep track of their money on a Bank Account Ledger. I do not actually hand out classroom currency or physical checks each week (as I have done in the past) because it is simply too much work. Students keep a ledger of their money and every entry must be signed by one of our student economists.

On the day an assignment is due, the rule in my classroom is that EVERYONE turns SOMETHING in. If a student does not have his/her assignment, he/she must fill out one of these Missing Work Logs (which I affectionately call “The Yellow Sheet” because they are printed out bright yellow paper) and turn it in in place of said assignment. Blank logs are kept in a stack at the front of my classroom, and my students know to grab one if they are missing an assignment on a due date.
