 Kids love to help in and around the classroom.   

  Most teachers have a helper chart of some kind in their room.
 I have my kids made little people to resemble themselves.

Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and the Five for Friday Linky Party! Lots of great ideas all around. 

       The tag at the bottom is for the student's name.

Here are a few examples of this year's helpers.  After the designs are completed, I laminate the helpers and cut them out.

         I am so pleased that the children take so much time and add details to the characterization of themselves. At the beginning of the year we are just getting to know our students. By observing student artwork, the teacher can learn so much about their students. Our students wear a uniform to school, so they really enjoy wearing everyday clothes to school on special days.

        Here are some of the helper tags.  The students attach their helper person near the tag of the job they have chosen. 

    What type of Helper Chart do you have in our room?

     Please leave a comment.  I always enjoy hearing your thoughts and ideas.

Have a great  2016 - 2017 school year!



  1. Those are adorable! I love the details they included. This year we have job "crews" and I am loving it!

  2. I LOVE the students' artwork! What a great idea. I assign two helpers per day, and they help with various jobs and errands. It works best for me, because I tend to forget to change the jobs when I use a job chart.
