Classroom Helpers Made Easy

Note: This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

Classroom helpers tend to be a hot topic 
in early childhood classrooms during back to school!
Is there a job chart to match your classroom decor?
Should you have a job for each child in the classroom each day?
How are you going to keep track of it all?

I am here to tell you throw away the job chart!
If you struggle to keep track of all twenty jobs on any given day,

Let me introduce you to... My Little Helper.
Its as simple as TYPE your children's name (YES, it is EDITABLE!),
print on Astrobrights colored paper, 
cut out squares and add them to your  Monthly Calendar Pocket Chart!

My Little Helper does it all!     
He/she is the line leader, calendar helper, Go Noodle song picker 
and just about any other job you can think of!
the door holder.  

So what is one to do?
The door holder is always the second child in line.
When the class line passes, that door holder stays at the END of the line. 
And then the child that is NOW second in line is the next door holder.  

Each month My Little Helper changes to a seasonal helper that compliment 
our monthly Monthly Calendar for the Year with Pattern Cards
 like My Little Snowman or My Little Starfish. 

My students love when the month changes and the new calendar goes up! 
They see immediately when its their turn and  
they are just as excited for their friend's turn each day.

As My Little Helper leads the calendar, we take off the Little Helper tag 
and the child gets to wear it for the day and then bring it home.  
You can tape it right to the child's shirt or slide it in a badge holder necklace.
Some of my sweet friends have even dressed up for their BIG day! 

I have made these editable and am excited to share these with you.
You can head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to download 
 September's  My Little Superstar under the preview of the whole pack HERE.

 to receive updates on new and coming activities!
My Little Helper AND Monthly Calendar Cards are on SALE through JUNE!
