Wordless Wednesday

My beautiful friend, Christina over at Sugar and Spice has a weekly linky where bloggers simply post a picture and ask our blog readers to respond! 

Here we go!

How do you keep up with your classroom jobs?


  1. In my class students keep their jobs for 5-6 weeks (and a lot of them are working with a partner/small group to manage their task), and have a changeover period where they 'train' their replacements. By not changing the jobs out as often it means I don't forget to do it, and the kids get to vote for the job they would like to do next.

    In order to keep track of who is in charge of which job, students have a little badge which lives on their book tubs.

  4. I have all the jobs on sheets of cardstock (with a chevron background) and it is hung up on a bulletin board, then I use clothes pins with my kids names to change out the jobs each week! Super easy!

  5. This year I tried something new. We pick sticks daily for any "special" jobs that are out of the ordinary. All students scurry around at dismissal and work together to tidy up the room and they love helping. I have to say it has worked out beautifully and has been a great opportunity to work in cooperation and responsibility since we all make the mess!

  6. I love using classroom jobs! I have laminated job cards with a velcro dot, and student names with the other velcro dot of the pair. My jobs are changed weekly, and on a Friday afternoon I rotate the names around in a circle so that I know that each child will have a go at each job. I have 18 jobs and 4 breaks, so after each 4-5 weeks my students get a week "holiday" from jobs.

  7. You are so so sweet!!! :) I don't actually do classroom jobs. I have one helper of the day and I have that kid do all of our errands and little chores. :) They love when it is their turn and if they are absent, I go to the next child and come back to them! :) Thanks for linking up!
