Howdy I am starting "new idea mode" and on the LONNNNG g:yawn: 12 hour drive back home this week, I started thinking about my classroom job situation. My first 2 years teaching, I had a pretty decent system. In a great location (on cabinet doors at arm level) I had a cute smiley system where I had about 12 jobs (a little less than 1/2 of my class had a job each week). It was easy, the kids worked, things were great. Then I moved schools. My new class was a bit smaller, so the 12 job thing was overwhelming. My 4th year, I put my jobs on my classroom door, which didn't work (I was still in denial about it and did it again this year). It was too low, and I never really gave out more than line leader, caboose, and rr monitors. This year, I have decided to put more responsibility on my main jobs. I am tired of having kids say "can I do xyz" all of the time. I also thought to put beside each job the responsibilities the job holder has. I am putting the jobs on a cabinet, so hopefully I can bring back that loving feeling :lol: I know that some of you change jobs daily, or weekly, but I usually change bi-weekly. My friend changes once a month, and another once a semester. Also, I know some of you have different jobs, or only have 1-2 student helpers. So, what do you do?
