Post a class list by your classroom entrance. As the students enter the classroom, they must move a clear push pin by their name to one of the following columns: Present, 1st Lunch Choice, 2nd Lunch Choice, 3rd Lunch Choice. When the tardy bell rings I can tell at a quick glance who is present/absent as my classroom helper fills out the lunch count form. Distinguish the designated helper by using a colored push pin. It will remind him/her of the special duties as he checks in!
