    I'm a 3rd grade teacher and I use those ready made pockets you buy in the teachers store. I write all the jobs on the outside of the pocket(one on each pocket). Then I write each child's first name on a popsicle stick unless you have more than one of a certain name then I add the letter of last name (Mike K., Mike L.)too. Cut out paper fish and let the students color them in (this can be done as a 1st day activity). Cut out fish and glue to top of popsicle stick (they can be laminated if you want). I change jobs monthly and put all sticks in a bag and let children pick their stick out of the bag this avoids fighting over jobs. When choosing month to month fist let students choose the sticks of students that did not have a job the previous month. The popsicle sticks allow for the pictures to stick out of job pockets enough to see who has what job. You could title "Fishing for Helpers". This can also be done with other pictures and titles. Hope this helps.
