My class has been doing the sign-in attendance sheets for months now, so I decided to add more to it by having them mark if they are hot or cold lunch and white, chocolate, or strawberry milk for lunch. This has been greet for them to see how to use symbols/variables to represent something and take responsibility for their choices. After they sign-in, they choose a math tub to work at (geo-boards, foam dice, pattern blocks, unifex cubes, counting bears, etc.) until all of the buses arrive. This keeps them actively engaged in math and those late arrivers aren't missing our morning meeting.

Great idea! I will have to try that with my students. I also have my students sign-in each morning and we have begun to write sentences in the places they sign-in. (New word for each day of the week) Not only are they working on math skills but also literacy! Very Happy
