Let’s be honest: without classroom jobs for students our classrooms wouldn’t run! When I taught both elementary and high school art, you better believe my students had classroom jobs! Art is a messy subject to teach.
Having a good roster of classroom jobs keeps your classroom clean, organized, and running smoothly. More importantly, students develop confidence, independence, and a knowledge base of actual jobs in the world.
My students switched jobs often. With this in mind I have created a classroom job board including a job application and checks. To make their jobs more official, have your students fill out the job application forms. Before switching out the jobs, have the accountant write out checks to each student as payment for a job well done.
I hung my classroom job board with ribbon along side my chalkboard and clipped my students’ names on with clothespins. You can laminate or “faux laminate” yours. Check out this POST on how to laminate for less. I hope this helps with your classroom management!
