I have looked at different school district lunch menus from California to North Carolina, and made a label with pictures for each menu option I found. If there isn't a label for it then it is obscure. You will get a zipped folder that includes the decorative labels, some blank cards for obscure choices, and a direction file on how to make a lunch chart as shown. The labels are an excellent way of meeting the needs of your beginning readers, and English Language Learners. The pictures allow them to make a visual connection to the words written. Each label has an attractive polka dot border. I chose this to make the cards more attractive, but not to distract from the intent of having students quickly read their lunch choice. The font is simple and easy to read. I found this to be a quick way to do attendance. I looked at the sticks left in the jar, and checked to see if they were absent. I also made this one of my student's job in the classroom. One student was responsible for looking at the school menu, putting up the correct choices, and then removing all the sticks from the pocket for the next day.
