One and Done

I love the Best of Mailbox books. I get the best ideas from them. One idea I gained that transformed - I'm talking transformed, how student jobs get assigned was the One and Done job chart. It was contributed by Emily Starr of DeWitt, IA in The Best of Mailbox: Grades 4 -6.

Emily suggests creating a yearlong chart. All you have to do is write the class jobs across the top and the dates in the far left column. For the first week, the fill the rows by listing each child once and repeat the process until the chart is complete. Make sure that you do not repeat any names in a given week. I hope this at least inspires you to try this method. It may be easier to create your own chart, but at least Emily and I gave you an idea. :)
