    lunch count idea

    Here's what we do in my 4th grade classroom...

    I have a student helper whose job it is to do lunch/milk count each morning. I have a class list on that person's desk when they arrive. It is their job to be sure everyone marks the list as soon as they arrive according to their choice (they mark "C" for cold lunch from home but with school milk, "H" for school hot lunch, and "T" which means cold lunch with their own drink.) The student helper counts up each total and writes the number at the bottom of the classlist. It's easy to see who is absent that day, too. The whole procedure takes about 5 minutes, and I'm freed up to do other morning things.

    It's quick, easy, and all I have to do is write the total numbers on my attendance sheet and send it to the office via the student helper.

    After the first week or so, we have a consequence for those that "forget" to mark the attendance sheet!
