Year-End Wrap-Up

Plan a time near the end of the year for students to reflect on what they have learned in the program and for you to tie everything together.

It is also a time to celebrate the students' successes and reward them for their hard work.

Certificates

Students who were able to save a significant amount of money during the year should be rewarded. We recommend awarding certificates to children who reached these savings thresholds:

  • Saver: $100
  • Super Saver: $500
  • Ultimate Saver: $1,000

Debriefing session

Hold a discussion with your students to reinforce what they have learned. Here are some questions to help guide the discussion:

  • What did you learn from the classroom economy this year?
  • What would you do differently in the classroom economy next year (e.g., how could you become an Ultimate Saver next time)?
  • Why do you think it is important to learn the things you learned in the classroom economy?
  • What was your favorite part of the classroom economy?

Class rewards

Consider allowing students to pool their money to purchase a class reward, such as:

  • A class party.
  • A movie day.
  • A crazy hat day.
