Classroom Job Application for Students
Students LOVE having responsibilities in the classroom. "Can I hold the door?," "Can I pass out the papers?," and "Can I collect the books?" are just a few of the requests that students will make over and over. Why not put that enthusiasm to good use? Let them write about the jobs they want to do! Even better? Why not help them learn responsibility.
I used these with my 4th grade students. If students wanted a new classroom job, they filled out an "application" and placed it in my "box." If students were not responsible, they would lose their job, and I would look through the applications to "hire" another person.
