This is a simple way to take lunch count each day. I use clothes pins and write the students names and lunch account number on them. I also have pictures on rings since I teach kindergarten and students have difficulty reading the menu (which I place next to the board). The clips always start at the top each day. Students find their name and place it on the side according to their choice. It is an easy way to see who is present or absent also. This makes lunch count a cinch!
