Classroom Jobs Teaching Resources

Make assigning classroom jobs easy this school year with printable job chart posters, lanyards, and labels to help your students know when and what they need to contribute to keep your classroom environment positive and tidy. Created by the teachers of Teach Starter and carefully reviewed by our expert teacher team, this collection of resources will help set up your students to be included in a classroom job roster. Whether your jobs are fixed or on a rotation system, there are options to ensure students can apply for and keep up with classroom helper duties and assignments!

How to Assign Classroom Jobs

Curious how this all works? Here are some tips from our teacher team on how to assign jobs in the classroom, plus ideas for classroom jobs for students that are age-appropriate.

1. Pitch Your Idea and Advertise the Roles

Tell the students you have noticed that there are lots of jobs that need to be done in the classroom to keep it an organised, safe, and effective learning environment. Ask the students to think of other reasons why it is helpful to keep a tidy and organised classroom. Draw out from your discussion that it helps us to look after our belongings so we can easily find the things that we need and focus on our learning.

2. Decide on the Duties

Make a class list of classroom jobs that need to be completed. It is a good idea to think of enough jobs to assign one duty per student. Your job list will be unique and vary over the years, but here are a few of our favourites:
  • Librarian
  • Messenger
  • Calendar Helper
  • Chair Monitor
  • Gardening Assistant
  • Equipment Helper
  • Line Leaders
  • Bag Monitor
  • Rubbish Monitor
  • Technology Helper
  • Window/Door Monitor
  • Teacher’s Assistant

3. Job Applications

Consider asking your students to apply for classroom jobs — it ups the ante of accountability. Download the Classroom Job Application Template, and see the job applications fly in. The key thing to focus on during this step is the students' understanding and appreciation of why each job is important and what valuable skills they will be demonstrating while completing them.

4. Allocate Classroom Duties

Before you announce the jobs in your classroom, hold a formal class meeting to describe each job and reinforce the values of responsibility, accountability and trust. Remember to explain to your class that you will do your best to match their first or second job choice. However, in cases where this isn't possible, the jobs will be assigned on a rotational basis and they are sure to do their preferred job soon!

5. Create a Classroom Display to Keep Students Accountable

Don't forget to set up job charts and create a display that is sure to keep your students on their toes.
