Classroom Jobs

This is the easiest way I've found to do classroom jobs. I was doing a lot of tidying up and organizing each day and thought that my 1st graders could do most of these things with a little training. I gave every child in my class a job. This builds community and responsibility. Children have a new job assignment every week. I keep track on pocket chart. I rotate the students by taking the last job listed and move it to the first spot. All other jobs are moved ahead to the next job. We also do some "job-sharing" where two children do a big job together. You just have to print the icons and match them to your students. 24 different jobs available.
