I so did this in my classroom. I’d make popcorn and bag up baggies full, buy juice boxes on sail, pick up cheap little toys from party supply and bags of candy. So years I’d have parents that would help out, some years I didn’t. But it was the best reward system I ever found in over 20 years teaching pre-school.
I printed up “money” and when I witnessed good behavior or they did well on a project or reached a goal they got glass bucks. On Fridays they got to spend them at the store. Worked very well, was good math and problem solving experience and I think it gave them beginnings in how money works and how to use it.
