The last two years I "hired" kids to update my chalk board during bus waves each afternoon.
That worked out well, but I decided to add some extra jobs this year, and open the jobs up to anyone who wished to participate.
I printed out the jobs that I offer to kids most frequently and put magnetic tape on the back of them.
Each day I put up the jobs that need to be done up on the board.
If a kid wants to do one of the jobs he/she takes it down and places it in the basket that I have provided.
|I need a new camera! Blurry picture of all the current jobs I have kids doing.|
|The basket they place completed jobs|
Jobs I offer:
-Change the daily agenda and SOL objective
-Update the vocab word of the day and wall
|Agenda is seen above|
|Daily Standard & Vocab Word|
|I have the student write the vocab words on an index card and place on the word awl|
Organize the class books
I give a punch on my reward card for each completed job so I am never short for helpers!
