A student needs your help, but the bell rings and you must get the class started. An overhead announcement request a student from each class is sent down before the end of the hour. You're in the middle of explaining the assignment and the phone rings. Sound familiar?
Here's a solution: Get your class into 'families' they will stay with for the year, and do more of what you were hired to do—teach. As a bonus, your students will become part of an interdependent classroom and gain the benefits that come along with it. Every student participates. Jobs change bi-monthly giving students opportunities to help with class routine--beginning class on time, dismissing on time, and everything in-between. It's a win-win every hour of your day.
Set up is required for this but well worth it. Once in place, you will use this year after year.
