Jobs in the Classroom!

A while back I asked my Facebook followers about their classroom job routines.  Some only had one or two helpers, while others had jobs for everyone.  Some changed jobs daily, and others bi-weekly.  I landed right in the middle, with jobs for half my group that rotated weekly.  I was inspired by our conversation, and decided to change it up!

First off, I created a new set of jobs for my kiddos... and yours, if you want them!!
These jobs match my classroom set-up starter kit! {chevon theme bundle}, but they can be used in any bright and colorful classroom!  I included 31 different jobs in two different sizes {4.5" and 3.5"}.

Take a look at the job options:
The set includes:
light technician, calendar captain, door holder, paper passer, caboose {or line ender}, attendance taker {or roll reminder}, recess helper/s, lunch helper/s, gardener, computer keeper, line leader, messenger, weather forecaster, backpack patrol, station inspector, homework checker, classroom greeter, morning leader, mail carrier, pet caretaker, board eraser, substitute, teacher's assistant, nurse, pencil patrol, supply manager, snack helper, clean-up crew, librarian, closet monitor, table captain {six colors}

Here's a close-up of what two job cards look like:

My plan is for each student to have a job next year, and I think I'm going to rotate every two weeks.  Once I print and laminate, I'm going to magnetize my new cards.  I plan on displaying them on my chalkboard {I usually use 2/3 of it for display and 1/3 for writing}.  I'm going to use mini magnet circles with student names or numbers to designate who has what job!  Another idea would be to create a clip-chart-like-chart {make sense? haha} and use clothespins! :)

If you're interested, you can pick up my jobs in the classroom {chevron theme} set in my TpT shop!!  I'd love to know what you think!!!  Leave me some love below :)

Cute tags! I can't ever remember to change the jobs so I leave them for the entire month. My kids don't seem to notice if I don't change the jobs on time for the month but they do if it's weekly.

These are super, super cute! I have 14 jobs...the years that I have a small class (I did have only 14 last year), the kiddos get a job each week. Other years (normally, 24 students) I they get a 'vacation' week with no job.

I let my kids pick their jobs and because of this...come Monday morning, they will NOT let me forget! Haha! They feel so grown up (in second) having the responsibility. I just call out, Nicholas what do you want to do this week and he tells me...I go on to the next kid until they are all filled. I seems to work out nicely!

I went to a Conscious Discipline training at the beginning of summer and they recommended having a job for each student. The last 2 years I had leader and door holder and always found myself making others throughout the year. So like you, I decided to change this year and have a job for every student! Your pack looks great.

I love the idea of every student having a job. I did this last year in 2nd grade but not sure now about Kindergarten.

These are so super duper cute! I already have job cards (depending on how many kids I have, a few may be jobless for a week), but these almost make me want to ditch what I currently have because they're not as cutesy!

Cute! I can't get enough of chevron and bright colors. It's so funny, but every Monday morning my kids get so excited to find out their classroom job for the week. It's the little things, I guess?!?
