He has a job that pays $1000/month. His bills equal $900/month plus interest. If he wants to buy anything more fun than an eraser or pencil from the student store he needs to earn bonus money. So far he's really enjoying this game and asks occasionally when pay day is. I'm sure that's just because he wants to get goodies from the student store, but at least he wants to play along.
|Some of this is a little above Capt. N's 8 year old math skills. But, we have these simple definitions to refer to when needed.|
|I gave him the job of janitor. In return for his work he gets paid $500 twice a month.|
|He can also earn bonus money by doing things like finishing a chapter in a book or getting 100% on a math test.|
|Just like in real life, he has bills to pay. His rent is $750, due the first of every month. He also has the option to purchase his home if he saves enough of his money.|
|This is his checking account register. I write in the deposits, he writes in the withdrawals.|
|The student store.|
Each pay day he has the option to buy certain items if he has enough money. His favorite things to buy are the fun erasers. He also writes me a check for his store purchases.
