The Job Wheel is used to put cleaning the classroom in the hands of the students. It is one of the best classroom management tools I have going. At the beginning of each day, I turn the wheel by one triangle to give the students a new job for the day. The jobs are in effect all day long and last five minutes of class are used to complete these jobs. For example: The Garbage Patrollers are picking up trash all day, but the end of the day is their final inspection. The Organizing Engineers are responsible for keeping specific areas organized, but the end of the day is when they make everything perfect for the next day. Etc.
At the end of the day, our classroom is neat, tidy and smells great! :)
