Ok so I LOVE this idea. A friend was telling me about an attendance thing she found in the Smart Exchange for use on the Smartboard. I had a look at them and then decided to make my own. I couldn't decide what to do for my class for September so I did a frog theme just to try - a gift to your Frog themers with Smartboards!!
The way it works is that you open the file in the morning and students click on their frog (or whatever shape you might use) when they come in the classroom. The frogs "jump" off the screen. You know by the frogs left on the lilypad who isn't there that day. I did it as Student 1, Student 2, etc. so that others could use it. You can change them so they have the child's name on it though.
Hope someone can use this. If you need help changing the names just let me know. Now I have to make one for my class!!
I am using my husband's laptop and it doesn't have Smart Notebook on it so I can't open your attachment. It sounds like a cute idea. I have a dog/puppy theme going on in my classroom. Would it be easy for me to change from frogs/lilypads to dogs/doghouses?
It would be easier to start from scratch. I'm making a bubble gum machine one now for my class. If you search attendance in the smart exchange you can find directions on how to do it. If you can't find it let me know how many students you have and I can make a little doggie one for you later tonight.
