25 Ideas for Flexible, Fun Classroom Job Charts

Check out these amazing job charts we found !

In my classroom, the job chart really gets hard use and rarely lasts more than one season. But I don’t mind too much, because there are so many cute ideas out there that I actually like changing it up every year.  Check out these fun examples that we found all over the internet using cheap and easy-to-find resources.

14. Ribbon clips

Laminate the job cards so they survive all the clipping that will happen during the year. Kids “on vacation” from jobs for the week can be attached to the ribbon at the bottom. If anyone is absent, those kids can fill in.

15. Circle clips

Clip-on colorful circles attached to ribbons- so cute! Circle shapes could be turned into planets, animals, or faces with different expressions. You can sturdy paper plates as your circle templates.
