Student Management

Job Assignments

In order to get all of your students involved in the classroom community, assign a job for each student. These jobs should be rotated by you on a regular schedule (weekly) in order to provide equal opportunity for each student. One way of doing this easily is to use self-adhesive library pockets and tongue depressors. You can have students help you with this by having them draw pictures of the different jobs on the pockets. You can also use photographs of your students performing the job or clipart. Have each student design their own tongue depressor, making their name stand out. Display the library pockets by attaching them to a large piece of tagboard or posterboard or make it into a bulletin board design. Use the tongue depressors to make job assignments and rotate them consistently.
