Shelley and I were speaking with a colleague of ours today after school. While sitting in Shelley's deskless classroom (and having just searched through a tub of stuff animals), our colleague says to us, "It's like Elementary in here!". You betcha!
Students are LOVING their new classroom jobs. Last week I used this Google Slides Presentation and this Job Request Form to explain to them all of the possible in-class jobs. Please feel free to make a copy and edit for your needs! I've gathered jobs from countless experts more knowledgable than I and I can't take credit for these wonderful ideas. I also have removed a few jobs that I didn't think would work for me or my students. The empowerment these jobs have given my students is invigorating and the freedom it has give me to focus on what is important (providing CI) is undeniable. My role as a language facilitator has really taken shape this year and I don't think it would be nearly as successful without this student ownership and responsibility taking place. Let them be creative! It's like elementary class afterall!
