I have a favorite shirt... "Queen of Unfinished Projects." I wear it all the time, and it fits. I had such good intentions of getting this blog up and running back in March... but...well I am too many irons in the fire type of gal. My friends say I am not happy unless my hair is on fire. Pretty true. :-)
I want to share my job wheel, in case anyone wanted to make one this summer. I L-O-V-E my job wheel. No flipping cards, or swapping names. One little, teeny-tiny turn and it is set for the next week. The job wheel has been through many revisions through the years. When I taught 5th grade, every kid had a job. In second grade, they have a "job" every other week. This works well for me and my classroom of 28-30 kiddos.
The design is simple 2 large poster board circles... the larger about 1-1/2 inches bigger than the inside. Divided into equal parts. Mine has 30 slices. The outside section is numbered 1-30 to correspond to the student's classroom numbers. (See no cards!) The jobs are written in with an overhead marker AFTER the circles are laminated. This has saved me a bunch of times when I need to add/change a job. I have colored in every other slice with yellow. That is how I alternate weeks. The "ODDS" have jobs one week, the "EVENS" have jobs the next week. Takes me three seconds to change. If that... I love it! This one is about 15 years old... NO JOKE! Maybe it is time for an update... Add that to my list of things to do this summer!
