I have been reading up on what kind of helper or classroom job list or chart.... I am thinking of giving it up and just having one assistant a day. They do it all. Is this too much for 1st grade? Would waiting for their day to come up be too long? This is my first year teaching 1st grade but I taught 2nd and 3rd for 23 years...I am thinking 3rd no problem. 2nd ..hmmm depends on the class. Any thoughts?

I teach first and have always just had one helper a day. It is way easier than changing job charts all the time. We just go in "number order" so they know when their turn is and they will even count ahead and figure out how many days until it is their turn. Occasionally there will be a time when I need two students to help with something so I will either pick another student to help or let the helper pick someone. The helper is the line leader, helps pass out papers, deliver things to the office or other teachers, etc.

In primary I always had a Line Leader, Caboose, and a Helper. It went in alphabetical order, and you were a helper for three days. Helper was a general catch-all and stood second in line to hold doors..

So Monday would be:

Line Leader: Sarah C.
Caboose: Jack B.
Helper: Vanessa A.

Then Tuesday would be:

Line Leader: Tommy D.
Caboose: Sarah C.
Helper: Jack B.

You bumped down one every day. The only time you didn't do three in a row were the first two days of school.

I'm moving to 6th, so I'm trying multiple jobs next year.

If someone was absent:
For line leader (when they enter the rotation): I skipped them and came back to them when they returned.

For another job: I did not assign the job until it was needed. Then I would pull a stick for it. It was known that if the person who was due for that job checked in late, the person chose would surrender the job and was thanked for their help.

I had the same helper for a week. Sometimes I had 2 helpers. It was fine. This was for K, 1st, and 2nd.
