Classroom jobs

What kinds of jobs do you have in a 3rd grade classroom? I'm sure this has been posted before, but with getting closer to the start of the year, I'd like to throw this out there again!

I had teacher helper, 2 line leaders (we lined up in two lines), library helper (that person would bring the library basket down to the library and bring it back up on the day that we had library), paper passer, paper collector. These are just to mention a few. If you go to this link http://www.atozteacherstuff.com/Tips/Classroom_Jobs/
it has a lot of neat ideas that are here on this forum. Good luck!

I have two class managers a day. They do everything and I rotate them everyday. I am not organized enough to keep track of who has what job.

I have one helper per day. That child does everything...line leader, attendance, lunch count and any errands that I have. I use appropriate diecuts on a ring that hangs above our calendar (apples, pumpkins, trees, snowmen, etc.) Each day the kids turn it so that the new helper is shown. This works great for me and for one whole day, that student feels really special!

I think I might have one or two helper a day rather then 5-7 helpers a week.

This isn't a bad idea actually. The gal I student-taught for had a job board with about 7 different jobs on it (one for each student) but I remember when we reviewed them each morning, it would seem like somehow the names had been re-arranged and one student would be line leader when they had just done it two days ago. We never did figure out how that happened. And too, you had to remember to shuffle the names. I'm wondering if more than one of us was shuffling the names at the end of the day and that's how that happened.

I have taught 3rd for 11 years and have done from everyone has a job to only 2 jobs a day. The easiest for me is when I use 2 jobs a day. Line Leader and Caboose. I post Line Leader and Caboose signs. Using name plates, each student has a card. At the end of the day the LL changes names for the next day. Line Leader does everything from opening exereses to errands. Caboose is in line for duties the next day. The reasoning for Caboose is when Line Leader is absent or unable to perform duties. This gives everyone a chance to do all jobs, know when their day is, and allows everyone equal opportunities. Having 24 students, students know that every 12 days they have a job. Hope this helps.
