There are many ways to incorporate classroom jobs/helpers. My first two years I made a chart with classroom jobs and descriptions. I had student names on clothespins and would just move them down each day. It worked okay, but as more students enrolled, some jobs became 2-day jobs since there wasn't enough for each student. Another year I did something similar except with names on cardstock paper and Velcro, but that didn't work well. I had a hard time managing classroom jobs. Some kids did them, some kids didn't.
So I decided that I would SIMPLIFY the process and I truly love how I do it now. I no longer have "classroom jobs", but I have student HELPERS instead. I have 2 helpers per day: one boy and one girl. These helpers help me with anything and everything that day from passing papers out, running errands to the office, being bathroom monitors, etc. I used name-tags to write students names on them and have two stacks: boys and girls. I hole punched two holes at the top and used string to tie them together. Then, I used Command Hooks to display them. At the end of the day, we just flip the name-tag to the next person. Easy peasy! Here is a look at how I display it. I'm sorry for this terrible photo...it's all I could find of it on my computer!
This morning I went to my classroom for the first time this summer. Although I have a LOT more to do, I did make some good progress! With my three year old with me, it went a little something like this: work on classroom, help clean up E's mess, work on classroom, have a snack, work on classroom, take E to potty, work on classroom, help clean up E's mess, etc. Repeat, repeat. Can anyone else relate?!?! Haha! Love that little boy! Here is my before and after shot of today!
