    What grade to you teach?

    List of classroom jobs that I have:

    line leader
    line ender
    2 paper passers
    pencil sharpener - check to see if pencils need sharpening or just clean out the sharpener
    2 library people - make sure the classroom library is in order
    Morning messenger - I actually give each child a number (ABC order) - Starting with Day 1 - The student who is number 1 brings the notices to the office.
    Person who turns the lights on/off
    Table captains - To make sure everyone at their tables has all their materials for each lesson.

    I change jobs every two weeks or on a monthly basis...

    Hope this helps.

    I teach 5th grade. I don't have enough jobs for every kid every week, but I tell the unassigned students they are subs in anyone is absent.

    My jobs are these:
    clerk-collects/passes out items when needed
    messenger-picks up my mail at the end of the day and delivers messeges around the building
    supply monitor-empties the pencil sharpeners daily
    recess equipment-transports recess stuff (two people)
    table cleaner-washes tables in lunch room
    floor/chair monitor-wipes chairs and sweeps floors in lunchroom
    attendence-takes lunch count, marks missing students, passes out lunch tickets
    class pets-feeds, waters, and mists the hermit crabs
    plants-waters my plants daily or as needed
    media specialist-keeps reading corner neat, dusts computers/printers
    pledge leader-leads class in morning prayer and pledge
    belts, socks, and books-this is necessary because of the school dress code-makes sure everyone is properly attired and assignment books are sigend by parents each night
    sweeper-sweeps classroom at the end of the day

    You may want to have two bathroom monitors (one boy, one girl) to make sure no one messes around in there during class breaks and/or police who make sure everyone stays quiet in the hall. They report infractions to you and you handle them. Many of the primary teachers in my building have these jobs.

    Good luck!

    I found my class jobs/duties on abcteach.com they are free. They have many listed because I have 22 students. They have the little pictures of the job, I printed them out and made a big chart and laminated it. It is really cute. I hope this helps!!

    Helper

    I am trying somethings new for me in my fourth grade classroom. I am going to have only ONE helper per day that will do it all. I can never remember to keep up with who does what, so I am hoping this helps!:D We will switch helpers daily.

    Mandy G - that is also what I'm doing! I cannot keep up with that many jobs, and I would get sick of saying, "Who is my mailman? Who is the line leader?" Just one helper for me, too! :)

    when I did a job for everyone, I kept a chart so I could see who had what job. What became aggravating was them arguing over who already had a certain job. They didn't understand that at one time they will all do a job twice.

    So now, I have two people each week who help with everything.
