It’s going to sound crazy, but I have never had “official” class jobs in our room. Don’t get me wrong, my kids have had jobs, but nothing was actually displayed. We kind of played it by ear and it worked well but I wanted to be more consistent on changing them out in order to give more kids an opportunity to take on some responsibilities. In the past, I just couldn’t find the right way to organize and mange them but this year I found a solution to that!
I’m a fan of keeping things simple. I wanted to create a job chart that was easy to maintain and that my kids could refer to when they weren’t sure what to do. These charts have detailed but easy to understand descriptions right under the title. If a child forgets what their job is, they can walk over to the chart and read the description. Here is my set up:
How are the kid cards held in place?
How do we rotate jobs?
How long do the kids keep their jobs?
What jobs does our class have?
