In my classroom, I use these on a metal cabinet. Each student has a magnetic name tag. Every morning, each student moves his/her name under the lunch item they wish for that day. This also makes taking attendance easy because the names that are still under "absent" are obviously absent because they did not choose a lunch item. I laminate mine so each day I have a student write the new lunch items on the blank ones. This allows my lunch count manager to easily tally the lunch count to take to the cafeteria. Hope you enjoy!
