BINGO: Working toward goals
Every time students go out into the community, they will take with them their BINGO boards. Each BINGO board will include spaces including goals for them to work toward. Some of them will include: asking a store clerk a questions, find an item in a store, or holding the door for a stranger. When a student gets “BINGO,” he or she can turn in the BINGO board for five bucks!
You may see your child bring home fake money (BUCKS) for participating in the work experience program, doing a nice job on CBI trips, or participating well in class. This is because we are learning about managing money! Students will be able to use their BUCKS to purchase items from the TRI MART (Transitioning Responsible Individuals Mart), or they can cash in their money for rewards like the ones listed below. The TRI MART store has been developed by donations made to our department to help motivate our students. You may see your student bring home movies, books, toys, crafts, or snacks a few times throughout the year.
Cash Exchange Reward Options and TRI MART
Students may use their money to purchase items from the TRI MART, or they may cash them in to earn these rewards. Shopping or Reward Exchanges may only happen during specified times, or after CBI trips (in the community or in the school).
