From Noah's time...

Ok seriously....I love my stinking school. We just turned 102 years old last year, so you can imagine some of the interesting things we have there! ;-) Which brings me to my teacher desk...I'm pretty sure it came over on the ark! (Noah's that is) I just had to make it cutesy and because my room is rather small, it is imperative that I utilize every.inch.of.space! So - here we have my lunch count/attendance. In the morning, students move their magnetic "lunch creature" from the good morning side to the packed or cafeteria side. Students who are left on the good morning side are your absentees, students who are on your cafeteria side are your lunch count (fortunately for us, we do not have to indicate a choice 1 or choice 2), and students on the packed side are who brought their lunch from home. Easy enough? I always stress to students that this is part of their morning routine and I would hate for anyone to forget to move their creature and be counted absent! *wink* Works like a charm! Anyways, I've included my labels below. Just print them off, cut out, glue on cutesy card stock?!, and adhere to your desk or filing cabinet. Any other great idea on how to do this differently or spice it up for next year?!? ~Miss E

My school is really old too - we are having our 95th birthday this year! And my desk is giant and ugly as well... I feel your pain.

Marvelous Multiagers!
