Simple way to take lunch count and attendance in the mornings! Laminate sheets before use for durability. Hang this chart near your classroom entry or an easily accessible location for students in the morning. I used magnetic strips on the back of each sign and hung on my white board. You can get creative and hang yours in a variety of ways!
Attach clothespins (or binder clips) with student names/numbers on them to the top sheet ("Lunch Count"). Students simply move their clip to the appropriate sheet when arriving in the morning. With a quick glance you can take lunch count (or delegate to your "lunch counter") AND take attendance.
