lunch pocket chart
Old 05-21-2008, 07:40 PM

My most valuable pocket chart helps the kids to come into the room and take charge of their day. When they come into the room, they pass a pocket chart that is large with 4 inch sections on each row. Each child has a name card that is placed in spaces along the right side. They move their name into the column that records if they are eating hot lunch, salad bar or cold lunch. There are two columns used for hot lunch. One column is used for salad. Another column is used for cold lunch.

If the name is not moved, I can see at a glance who is absent or tardy.

I write what is on the menu for hot lunch on a stickie note and put it on the hot lunch card. My column cards are placed along the bottom, near the left side of the pocket chart.

For math lessons, I have replaced the names with shapes. I can easily write a key that helps the kids to alter the lunch chart into something that we are practicing...collecting data, making graphs and reading graphs.

Hope this helps!
