Learn Personal Info + Lunch Count
Grade Level(s): K
Submitted by: Renae, Kindergarten

At the beginning of the school year, I get a lunch tray from the cafeteria and put two small plastic boxes on it labeled "hot lunch" and "bag lunch." I then get a tongue depressor for each child with their first name on one side and their last name on the other side with another color. I begin by having all of the children find their first name and put in in the appropriate box. I then switch to the last name side. When all students are able to identify their first and last name, I get new sticks and write the child's last name on one side and their phone number on the other. I also use the child's address, birthday, etc... I "test" a few children each day and put a sticker on the tongue depressor if they recite it correctly. It is a great way for children to learn personal information as well as do the lunch count.
