Use this item when your students are completing their morning routine. The students will drag their name to the correct column and if their name hasn't been moved, they aren't in attendance (or forgot). My students love using the Mimio and this is one strategy to easily keep track of lunch count while getting your students prepared for the day.
I would suggest that this be the last thing they do before they are required to be in their seats. This can motivate stragglers who take their time getting settled in the morning and get them on task quicker.
To type in their names, simply select the lunch bag and ungroup the items (in Notebook, go to Format and scroll down to Grouping to ungroup the items). Type in their names and then Group them by selecting both items (shift and click). Then, go to Format, Grouping and group the items back together.
Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
