I used to have many, many jobs that I would assign each day and found that I had trouble remembering who was supposed to do what, as well as conflicts/hurt feelings among the children. Last year, I used the colorful cut-out handprints and put each child's name on one. I separated them into boys/girls and then put them together with a library ring. Each day I pick a new boy helper/girl helper and they do EVERYTHING for that day. If that person is absent, we decided to skip that person and then go back to them when they are back at school. I have noticed that with this system, the students are VERY honest about whose turn it is... and the conflicts have subsided since everyone knows that it's the helper's jobs to do it all...no confusion!
