Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity. We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom. Student Job, Schools Ideas, Job Chart, My Job, 1St Day, Teacher, Schools Years, Classroom Ideas, Anchors Charts
