Bueller... Bueller...? Attendance!

How do you take attendance in the morning?  Do you call names {Ferris Bueller, anyone?} or struggle to remember who usually occupies today's empty seat?  If the answer to either of those questions is YES, or if you just want a caaa-ute new way to keep track, then read on!! 

Here's how I plan on noting attendance this year:
Isn't is bright and cheery? :)

To make this display, I used two baking sheets from Dollar Tree.  They're magnetic... any magnetic surface will do!  Then I put mini magnets on the back of colorful numbers and labels.  And that's IT!  Instant attendance board!

All numbers will start on the "I am not here today" side.  As kiddos come in, they are in charge of moving their numbers to the "I am here today" side.  Then while taking attendance, I can glance at the board and quickly see who's missing!  I plan on having an "Attendance Officer" who will make sure students are moving their numbers.  The AO will also move the numbers back to the "I am not here today" side at the end of the day.

If you are interested in learning more and grabbing your free set of numbers and labels, stop by my blog!!  I can't wait to see you there! :)
