Student Jobs in the Classroom

Before introducing individual classroom jobs over 2 years ago, I only had 2 jobs.
Leader and door holder.
What!? I know!
Both would change daily. The leader would lead calendar and if they were responsible, I would have them run any errands that popped up during the day. I know you just 'gasped' and I did too! It obviously wasn't a very fair or consistent role. So I finally came to my senses and created a job for each student!

The last 2 years, every student in my class has had a job or a role in the classroom.
 Once thing I have noticed is that it helps a great deal by creating unity and a family-like environment. 

Here is how I have the jobs displayed. 
 That will be there job for the entire week
The only thing I have yet to add is a numbered popsicle stick.
Each card will also have a numbered stick next to it. This number coincides with the students' magic number.
On Friday afternoon, I will rotate the sticks so that their new job is ready for when the come Monday.

I have made 3 different sets of job cards. 
Bright Chevron.

Each set contains 30 different jobs for your class.

  1. Thanks for sharing your classroom jobs! I do something similar, but I don't have a job for each student. I have 10 jobs for my classroom, so my students get a job at least once every other week, and they keep it for the whole week. I just bought a new jobs bulletin board set from my local teacher store. I'll share it soon once I do my classroom reveal. :)
