I love classroom jobs. I think they make a classroom run more smoothly, help a classroom feel like a community, and overall help us teachers with the day to day management of the "stuff" in the classroom.
I knew I wanted to make a trendy job bulletin board that would be age appropriate for my fifth graders, so I mimicked my bloggy pal Jordon's iHelp bulletin board!
Class Captain- The Class Captain is in charge of checking lunch count at the beginning of the day and handing out lunch cards. He/she fills out any absent paperwork for absent students and places the work in the Absent folders. He/she is also in charge of wearing the, “Ask me!” lanyard during small groups and answering any questions students might have while Mrs. Tackett is working with groups. He/she is also in charge of helping any substitute teachers in our class. See the green clipboard for more details.

My favorite job is our Class Captain. He/She even gets to hold a green clipboard throughout the day. See it sticking above the absent folders on the right of the shelf? :)
I especially love the idea of them wearing an "Ask Me" badge during small group time. They will be responsible for answering questions students might have while I am working with a small group!
