This set includes 12 weeks (60 school days) of colorful attendance sign-in questions that are easy to use. After you take attendance, the data analysis begins!
How it works: For example, there might be a 2-circle Venn Diagram with the question "Do you like hot dogs or hamburgers?" You can have students figure the number of students who like hot dogs out of the total who signed in, then figure the number who like hamburgers out of the total, Then figure the number of students who placed their name outside the circle (for those who like neither). Then make the fraction, and if you want, show students how to figure the decimal amount and percent. Be sure to prove the total is 100% by adding up the decimals and percent. Doing this EVERY day your students will have a great understanding of how fractions and decimals work because they used their own data to figure it.
You’ll use the template to add your student names and the best thing is – you only do this once for the whole year! Then just copy your student names and paste them onto the next day’s question. Simple and fun!
Question Topics in this Set:
Get to Know You, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas
Take attendance and analyze the day’s data to sneak in some fractions (and decimals and percents for older students). This set is designed with 60 get-to-know-you questions plus there’s as a week of Halloween questions, a week of Thanksgiving questions, and two weeks of Christmas questions. Students will move their name as they answer the day’s question. The names that haven’t been moved are the absent students. Your attendance is taken and then you can look mathematically at the data created! I love, love, love this set and so do students!
You’ll get teacher directions with visuals to show you how to add your names and how to group objects. There’s a teacher practice file with and a set of pre-made names in two color options so you can simply replace the names with your student names. I’ve included other handouts for you to use as a reference if needed. Included also are student recording sheets that have a spot for the day’s question topic, and a spot to record the trait’s fraction and decimal and percent. There is a primary version of the recording sheets and an intermediate set as well.
There are 113 pages of SMART Notebook files and PDFs in this set.
You will need SMART Notebook software to use this set.

Start the day out right with some math in your attendance!
Note: As of Sept. 2019, there will not be any more SMART Board sign-ins created. I hope you enjoy these!
