Students will earn Coley Cash for good behavior, great choices, a positive attitude, kind words, participation, etc. They will put their Coley Cash in their pencil boxes and every two weeks on Friday, they will get to visit the classroom store if they have at least $8.00.
Students learn very quickly that earning Coley Cash has its rewards. Students are motivated to earn as many as they can. I have found it becomes less about the reward and more about becoming the best citizen that they can be. Students strive to earn more than they did the previous week.
Parents often ask how many Coley Cash should their child be earning daily/weekly. The number is actually not that important. I believe in always looking for the positive.
Thank you for your help,
