Tired of counting magnets or other tracking device? School doesn't want to pay for ActiveInspire any more? Here is a simple way to have students fill out their own lunch count. Just have one of these spreadsheets on a computer screen and a student can use a drop down to select their lunch.
There is a Daily workbook that lets you add pictures and follow flow better and a Weekly that lets you track the choices and is locked down so the kids can not click where they shouldn't. Both auto calculate what choices were picked (no more counting) as well as come with two sheets that best fit your class size.
Fill out your students names and add the lunches and you are set. I recommend making a master copy with kids names that you can copy as needed. Also, if you use the daily one, just don't save when you are done and you will be ready for the next day.
Free updates. You can see a Google Sheet sample here
