- Finding your name from the column of lunch cards posted outside the cafeteria line.
- Keeping track of the lunch card while moving through the line, grabbing milk/juice from the deep, refrigerated bin, deciding which entree looks good and saying or indicating your choice to the lunch lady, not minding everyone shoving your tray (or you) along while you wait in line to pay.
- Placing your card into the debit card reader with the correct side up and the correct edge going into the port of the card reader.
- Entering your PIN. Oh, the confusion the first few days of school when everyone has to enter a PIN and you're so nervous that you'll mess up! It's sorta like the feeling I had when I had to learn to open my locker...the dreaded locker combination...
If you're not hanging out with your students at lunch, music, recess, art and PE you're missing out on the fun--and valuable information. And, as a personal note, if you're as sensitive to loud noise as I am remember to bring along some earplugs.
