What is My Classroom Economy?

My Classroom Economy is a program that enables any educator to teach children financial responsibility through fun, experiential learning.

It's a simple classroom economic system based on the idea that students need to earn school "dollars" so that they can rent their own desks. By bringing real-world scenarios into the classroom, students see the impact of their decisions to save, spend, and budget.

Everything you need to build a classroom economy is available on this site—for free. Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the program.

What does financial responsibility look like?

It’s the pride of earning a paycheck, the satisfaction of sticking to a budget, and the ability to save for a distant goal. And it can start as early as kindergarten.
