Hi there! This is going to be my second full year in my school and we start up in a couple of weeks. In my school, the 4th graders have special jobs throughout the school, which they go to for the last 10 minutes of the day. I am assigned at least one helper each school year and I give them things to do to help me out. Last year I only had one helper, so I was able to manage to find enough work that was appropriate for the child. This year, however, I will have 3, and I just can't think of enough work the children can help me with, given the sensitive nature of my paperwork. Any ideas?
I already have them swap out my ice packs. I use wet sponges in ziploc bags, so they swap them out into new bags and put them in the freezer for me. They wipe down door handles and cabinet pulls. They wipe down counter surfaces.
As I'm writing this, I thought of the fact that they could refill bandaids and certain other basic supplies. Any other ideas? TIA!
