Classroom Substitute

This is one of my new classrooms jobs this school year.  I LOVE it, and so do the children.  Basically, one of my students is the classroom substitute.  Instead of subbing for other students when they are absent, the student is MY substitute. 

Each time we transition from centers or lessons to the next activity, the kids usually gather on the rug.  This is when my classroom substitute comes forward and does sight word flashcards with the students or points to the number grid to practice counting.  
The substitute picks two students and shows them a flashcard and whoever says the word first wins!

This is SO helpful for me because I can spend this time helping students finish their activity or prepare my things for the next lesson. 

What are some of your favorite classroom jobs?
