I told myself I would not have jobs in my classroom.
They're hard to keep up with.
I can never remember who should be doing what.
And more often than not they tend to be more effort than they're worth.
Then I got my class.
All of my students had come from one of four other classrooms.
All of those classrooms had class jobs.
My students wanted to know what their jobs were.
They pushed and shoved and got in trouble because they all wanted to be line leader/door holder.
So I caved.
I made a job list on my white board that I changed daily.
But I had no good way to rotate the students or remember who had done what.
Plus it was taking up half a white board.
Of course I immediately started searching pinterest.
I saw this one and decided to make one using the jobs I had already come up with.
Mine is no where near as pretty. I'll probably do more work on it later, but mainly I just wanted it up this week. Plus, I'm sick so I spent maybe 10 minutes on it....
It's hard to see in the picture.
On the bottom right it says extras and holds all the names that don't have jobs yet. Their sticks will travel around clockwise, changing each Monday.
Jobs in order:
Substitute- Takes over if someone is absent
Table Washers- Cleans lunch tables
Morning Meeting- Does Calendar and Money Mob
Electrician- Turns out lights.
Teacher Helper- Opens door when someone knocks, runs notes, passes papers out, and anything else I need.
I also have their pictures cut out in circles that will be glued to the sticks so it's easy to see from farther away.
