Authorized to Hand Out Only up to Five Jay Bucks per Class; Class of Eight
I hate competition and hate it even more in education, but here I am, writing names on the board and drawing stars next to them to correspond with students' behavior, making them compete for who's going to get the most stars and therefore a Jay buck (yes, Jayland has its own currency, which can be spent on the contents of a large display case in the lobby), but the stars are how we control this particular class of five- and six-year-olds, and until we implemented this system, only four weeks ago, the class was the hardest hour of the week. Still.
