Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have 26 students this year, 3 of whom will not necessarily spend their entire day within our classroom. In the past I have had 20 jobs that rotate weekly and everyone within our classroom has a job but due to the increasing population, I'm considering having one "Star" of the week who will either do many of the jobs or will choose their helper. This person would also be the sharing person of the week. Thoughts?

I used to have a job for most everyone, but I changed it. Now my star of the week does most of the jobs with the help of the star of the week from the previous week. I also have table leaders who do jobs for their table, such as stack chairs, pass out papers, etc.

I was amazed how much simpler my life was when I went to one helper who did it all. No more charts and trying to figure out who does what and be fair about it. When everyone had a turn as helper of the week then I went to helper of the day and the class enjoyed that. Many parents would let me know how excited their child was when it was their turn.

Almost all my DD's elementary teachers did that, and used the previous SotW to help out when needed.

1 teacher's helper and then then s/he has a shadow for the week or really our 6 day cycle. The shadow accompanies him and fills in if the helper is absent. At the end of the cycle, the shadow becomes the helper. Not only is this easy to keep track of because each student has a number and we go through number order but also the helper more readily masters the harder things such as calendar leader because s/he does it for 6 days.

I have a reporter for the week, leading calendar, math and weather reports.
Two door holders (my kids walk up to 2 nd or 3 rd floor daily)
Two paper/ materials helpers
Two messengers ( fill in if another job holder is absent)
Line leader
Caboose
Everyone else is " Take A Break"
It's easy to organize by number

one boy and one girl

I have a boy helper and a girl helper each day. A set of the students' name tags are in my pocket chart in the front of the classroom. In the morning I move the front name tag to the back. If that person isn't there, I put their name tag second so they can be the helper when they return. I have first graders, and they like having a lot of turns being the helper.

Helper of the Day

This has simplified things a lot! I also have table captains for certain jobs at each table. The helper gets to choose a buddy when running errands. They love this! Helper also gets to read a book to the class if they bring one. This helps me when I'm bombarded with kids who want to read to us. I say definitely when it is your next turn to be helper.

go around cup

I use a go around cup for jobs. Each morning I pick out names for jobs and those students do the jobs.

I have my students stand in line-order so I do not have to worry about that job.

Jobs: 3 to open the closet doors. (Old building - doors slide.)
1 "teacher" for Morning Math
1 "teacher" for reviewing the spelling words for the week.
1 student to take the breakfast bin to the cafeteria.
1 students to be the office errands person, if needed.

I have other jobs, but not daily, and again I pick out names from the go-around cup.

I do the same when we are reading the Morning Message. Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2, etc.

I found this was the easiest way and most democratic for my class. I make sure everyone gets a turn, but it does depend on the go-around-cup.

The only exception is if a student manged to get on the "Red Light" for the day, they lose their privilege for the day.

Green Light - everyone starts each day.
Yellow Light - Warning
Red Light - Top of the list of annoying. Lose privileges.
