Classroom Jobs Update

I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know I added 6 more job labels to my Classroom Jobs set! So if you have already purchased it, be sure to download the new one! Here is what I added:

 I can't believe I forgot to add this one!! I have a jar in my classroom labeled "compliments". Whenever my class receives a compliment ("Good job standing quietly," "You're class was great today!" etc) they get a marble in the jar. Whenever the marbles reach the top, I give them a party. The kids LOVE this, and it really gets them to work as a team. I also tell them if they work together and behave for a substitute, I will give them 3 marbles! One person is assigned the Compliments Monitor job. The kids know whenever they receive a compliment, this person will automatically put a marble in the jar!

This is the student who brings me a band-aid when I need one to give to another student, runs to the nurse for me when I run out of first aid supplies, and they also know where I keep my nurse passes so they can grab one for me when I need to fill it out! It saves me a lot of time, and keeps me from stopping what I'm doing to grab a band aid for a small paper cut:)

This person pulls down the screen for me when I need it! This way I'm not walking back and forth to the front of the room, AND I don't have 5 different kids asking me to pull the screen down!

On another note, my wonderful mother convinced me to open up a shop on Teacher's Notebook! I'm slowly but surely adding things to my store over there! I will still have the same things in my TpT store, I just know some people prefer Teacher's Notebook, so I'm trying to help reach everyone! Here is the link to my store: Stickers and Staples at Teacher's Notebook.

Hope you all had a great weekend! We took a little mini-vacation! It was so nice to get away from the "norm" and have fun with my family:) It also means I should be doing a lot of laundry and unpacking today...but I'm choosing to work on my school stuff instead!! haha
