Classroom Jobs

Intro to Classroom Jobs:

For my younger age group, I have more jobs to make sure all my students have a job and feel needed in my classroom. Their jobs will change weekly to keep them engaged in having a job and to let each student do all the jobs at least twice in a school year. For my older age group, I have less jobs, because they are more likely to think that jobs are too elementary for them, so I will assign jobs to only a few of my students and change them every week also. 

Here are some videos that you may find helpful when thinking about student jobs!
