Lunch Count

Here is a fun way to track attendence and lunch count.  Label containers with the lunch choices and have kids put their 'lunch stick' in which choice they want to make.  
There are different types of sticks or ways to create personalized sticks.  The following are some neat ideas to try depending on your classroom age or your resources:

1. These are popsicle sticks shaped as people from Lakeshore.  They are on sale for $3.16/12 or $8.76/36. 
Jumbo People Sticks

2. Take pictures of the kids and put them on the tops of the popsicle sticks.  It would be a good idead to laminate the pictures and use a glue gun to attach them. This will just make them last longer.

3.  I found this idea on another blog (Cravings{The Journal}).  She made colorful people sticks with paint.
