Behold… the Job Wheel!

Jun 5, 2011

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!
