Helping Hounds
Grade Level(s): K, 1-2, 3-5
Submitted by: Nancy Z, 3rd grade

I have a very long hound dog with the words "Helping Hounds" written across the dog. Each of my students has a small hound with his or her name written on it. The classroom jobs are written on doggie bones. The jobs are rotated on a weekly basis by simply moving the hounds from bone to bone.

  1. From clip art or some other source, find a picture of a hound and type helping hounds across it. It should be around 2' long.
  2. Find a smaller picture of a hound and print only the outline.
  3. Students love coloring their hounds during the first day or two of school.
  4. Out of oak tag, make doggie bones that are about 7" long.
  5. Write the various jobs on the bones and then have them laminated.
  6. Hang on a bulletin board.
  7. I use clips to attach the students' hounds to the bones and then I rotate jobs on a weekly basis.

Young students really like having their own hound to decorate and they absolutely love being helpful in the class.
