JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - Brian Holder's 2nd grade class is learning a big lesson...it takes work to earn a dollar.
Every day Mr. Holder gives each student a letter grade based on their behavior. If a student receives five A's, she or he gets $100 to spend at their classroom store.
The money may not be real, but the rewards sure are. Erasers, candy, pencils and beads for a necklace are common picks, but if the kids save up, they can cash in for a big reward.
After three consecutive weeks of good behavior, the students can use their $300 for personal guitar lessons from Mr. Holder. He brings his love for music into the classroom.
While the kids save up for a lesson, they all get to enjoy his guitar music because he encorporates it into english time too.
