This is a very easy to use spreadsheet. *Using the SMARTboard, the students choose "hot, cold, PB, or Salad" from a dropdown menu next to their name. Then the total lunch count is added up automatically for the teacher at the bottom of the spreadsheet. Obviously if the word absent is next to their name, then that student is gone. There are also 3 information zones. One is a place to enter the lunch menu, the second is a bullet style area to enter any important schedule reminders for the day and the third is a "post-it" style area to display any specific instructions for students. The third is my personal favorite because I'm not a fan of repeating myself 20 times. Additional students can easily be added if need be. Just copy and paste an existing student and change the name. This spreadsheet has completely changed my once hectic morning routine. I like to save a template and then after I'm done with the spreadsheet for the day I choose not to save my changes and just reopen the template the next day.
