Money with Your Picture
Motivating students can be difficult. Many teachers create reward programs where a student can receive special valtures for good work or for good behavior. Here's a fun website that will allow you to create either a $1 or $10 bill with your picture on it. Now when your students complete a task worth receiving a valture, you can hand them a bill with your picture on it that can later be turned in for a special prize. Creating the bills is easy:
- Choose a money bill (dollar or yen)
- Upload a photograph
- Optionally, re-position the photograph
- Download your final image
- Print your bills
Ever wondered where they get those giant checks when they give away a million dollars? Would you like to have some large checks for your visually impaired students to practice on?
