Classroom Job Board & In Our Class...

Monday, January 7, 2013

Happy Monday!

Today is our first day back after a long, wonderful break!
And in between lots of relaxing, reading, and spending time with family, I was also able to get a couple projects done for my classroom! 

My first (and favorite!) project is my new classroom jobs board!
My old one I made 3 years ago and it was getting a little faded and was due for an update!

I bought the colorful twine a while ago because it looked so fun, and I knew that I would find something to do with it! Then I saw Cara's Advent Calendar and it gave me a great idea for my job board! 

After I gathered all the materials, this was super easy to make! It started off looking like this:

And (sidenote) here it is again with our beautiful new lab, Ella! We adopted her this weekend and couldn't be more excited! She is 3 years old and an absolute love bug! She loves to snuggle and follows us everywhere! So of course since she was outside with me while I was taking pictures, I had to snap one with her!

 After I had the main part done, I just had to add my kiddos' names! I just typed them up (I used Kimberly Geswein's fonts... have you seen her work?? Her fonts are amazing!!! ), printed them off, cut them out, and glued them to the cardstock. That way I can just peel them off and change them out when I need to! 

(I used to change jobs every week on Monday, which worked well the past few years, but there were some jobs that I really wanted someone doing consistently who knew how to do it and was good at it. So I decided to have my kiddos fill out a "resume" and apply for their top 3 job choices, from which I assigned them jobs. It's been working really well! I might switch up jobs again once more before the end of the year... we will see!)

My next project was inspired by Tracy at Creekside Teacher Tales and Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade! I started this probably over a month ago, but then couldn't decide on which colors I wanted (story of my life!) and I put it off until this weekend! So glad I finally finished it!

 I am linking up with Tara for her Monday Made It! Head on over there to check out all of the creative awesomeness that everyone has been up to!!


  1. I love your job chart, very cute. But I really love your "In our class we do.." Something like that may help motivate my students! I'm having a rough year with my students. :/ I'm hoping a nice long break will help fix that.

  2. Oh my goodness!! These might be the cutest things I have EVER seen! I love your stuff! It is so visually appealing and clean and neat! Feel free to come to my classroom and help me decorate! ;)
