Updated Job Application for Kinders.

After attending the Economy workshop last week and into this next week, I’ve made a change to the job application; I wanted to have the children make some choices in the jobs that they want, and wanted to make sure they didn’t have to choose one job exclusively.  There are now lines for them to choose 3 jobs–they will start with one and rotate through the others to make sure they have more than one experience.  My Kinder. kids will probably start the year using a rotation model–I will have “x” amount of jobs and they will do the jobs for 1 week at a time.  Then each Friday, they will be responsible for training the new person who will do their job.  I only have to train for jobs once that way, even if a new student comes in mid-year the person who currently has a job will show them the ropes-so to speak!


I will also be working on some job card pictures to put next to their names in a pocket chart.  I’m pretty sure I will have a pocket chart on a tall garment rack and then put two columns of jobs, one on the left and one in the middle.  I will put some colored electrical tape down the center to help with confusion of columns.  I will start them off with a job (1st of 2nd choice) that they would like and then move their name down the chart one space each week until we’ve been through the whole rotation.  The only time jobs would change is if I had to add a job or take a job away for seasonal reasons.  There is a list of the jobs I will have included in this application file, as well as a slip for fines, Random Acts of Kindness, job descriptions for the oddly named jobs, and then the application itself, with an area for “teacher use only!”

Enjoy and let me know if you have anymore jobs I should add to the list!
