Classroom Jobs with a Camping Theme!

It's a Linky Party! - 

Inspired to join in the fun, I started working on my camping themed jobs!  Here’s what I’ve come up with! All of the names don’t have a camping theme, but I figure I will at least pair the job with a camping picture and that should do the trick!
Star Camper-We have a whole morning routine to cheer for this student.  Then this person picks a friend (a boy has to pick a girl and a girl has to pick a boy).  These students have three jobs for the day. I find this the best way to fill those jobs that that are gender specific and also the most coveted job of allpaper passer! 1.  Line leaders  2. Bathroom monitors 3. Paper passers.

 Weekly Jobs (some of my jobs require more than one student. I have a lot of jobs because I have a lot of kids):

Sanitation Ranger(2)-gives a pump of hand sanitizer
Math Choice Manager(2)-Helps put math choice tubs back in order, I keep my math tubs numbered.
Calendar Changer (2)-This helps out so much because I never remember to do it, but they never forget!
Campground Attendant(2)-messenger, takes attendance to the office
Lunchroom helpers(2)-helps clean up after lunch
Camp Host-Welcomes guests who visit our room

Lunch Count(2)-These kids make sure everyone moves their card in the morning, then they put all of the cards back at the end of the day.
Camp Ranger -Answers questions, help other kids when I’m with a reading group
Wood Collector-Collects pencils off desks
Reading Ranger- Organizes classroom library

    1. Jody,

  4. I like your water counter idea. I added that job on to my line leader. My hope is that the line leader will get their water then turn and count for the rest of their line... that's my hope of course.
    I'm having a giveaway and my first linky party! Just scroll down to find all the goodies.
