Classroom Jobs


Using a classroom helper or job chart will help the teacher to maintain fairness when delegating responsibility. When selecting students to do a job, all students should have an equal chance to participate. Having a job will increase his/her sense of responsibility. Jobs can be assigned at circle time and completed during the day. Jobs can be rotated daily, weekly, or whenever works for the specific classroom.

Using a Classroom Job Chart:
  • Think of jobs most important to you in the classroom.
  • Explain each job to the students. Your students will need to know your expectations on how the job needs to be done.
  • Keep track of which students have which jobs - use a rotating schedule so that each student has an equal chance of doing a job.
  • Let the students know how long they will have their job (ie: daily, weekly, etc.).
