Bucks for PB?  What is that?

EF BGC is encouraging Positive Behavior by giving BGC bucks.  

The staff is empowering the Kids at EF BGC to have good behavior, practice learning skills, show their finance skills, save and buy what you want.

The EF kids are earning BGC bucks for behavior, report cards, homework, chores, and helping.  They have to calculate how much they should receive or earn for the activity rewarded.  They have to keep and save their money until the end of the week and buy one item from the EF BGC store.  

Math is usually a struggle for some of the kids, so they have to think about how much they are getting and yes, they lose it too, so not only do they add and multiply, they have to subtract and divide.  

Yes, poor behavior will cost the kids too.  They don't like their money being taken away.  So not only are they learning math skills, they are doing it with positive behaviors.  EF out!!
