Job Cards

I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made-It.  If you haven't checked out her blog all the great links, head on over!

I've needed a job chart for ages!  Every year, I assign jobs and can NEVER remember who has what job.  I have literally no wall space any longer, so I knew a large pocket chart just would not do.  I have a Star of the Day that does most of my daily jobs like passing out papers, line leader, etc.  But, I do like to assign everyone a job that they're responsible for the entire year.

Last year, I was talking to a teacher from another campus and she mentioned that she calls her helpers "professionals".  I loved it, and knew I wanted to start that this year.  I decided to make cards with spaces for me to write my students' names.  That way if I have to reassign a job, I can adjust it easily.  I'm crazy about colors, so they'll match that theme and it won't take up very much space at all! Yay!

You can find the job cards at my teacher store. There are a total of 21 jobs and 6 blank cards to create your own.  Click the image below to head to my teacher store.

The jobs included are:
Computers, Messenger, Recess, Assistant, Sink Area, Pencils, Lunch Leader, Library, Band-Aids, Sweeper, Lights, Breakfast, Directions, Mail Carrier, Supplies, Desk Monitor, Fire Drill, Spills, Chair Checker, Duster, Line Leader


  1. I love the idea of calling your helpers "professionals", too cute! Thanks for sharing!


  2. These are cute! It's such a great idea to keep them on a ring to save wall space! I have them downloaded and ready to go. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Colleen! Oh my how I love this idea!!!! Did you hit 200 downloads yet???? I'm hoping not for my sake...I would love a copy but don't know how to get them. I don't have any wall space either...I have no clue how I am going to fit in Math Workshop rotations. Thanks for linking up:) Great idea;)))

  6. Hi Tara, thanks for the fantastic linky! The cards are still absolutely free. I moved the link above the image, it was a little hard to find before. Thanks!

  7. Hey Colleen,
    I don't do FB and don't have a scribbed account so it won't let me download....could you email them to me if it's not too much trouble?


  8. What a cute idea! Just found your blog through the linky. :)
