The responsibility of writing important announcements on the board is not needed or required, but can be helpful. You can write almost anything on the board, as long as it is out of the way. Writing announcements on the top, sides or bottom of the white board is totally fine. Just grab a dry erase marker and then write your note, (don't write in complete sentences, as it takes up more room, and is just a note). Some things you could write would be permission slips to turn in, how many jobs weren't done, chairs that weren't stacked, or websites to check out that are concerning class parties, or things we are setting up at the park after school. But if you are going to write something on the board don't do it during a lesson, test or Rearjmcl; (only do this during Rearjmcl if it involves what is happening, if it doesn't wait until it is pack up time).
Writing important announcements on the board is important to our classroom because without it we might forget more stuff. Maybe less kids would remember to turn in permission slips or we would forget to evaluate our behavior with substitute teachers. This classroom responsibility is important because without it we could forget how many chairs had to be stacked or how many jobs weren't done.
