I use four sets per year. Each child has one for the subjects of math, writing, and reading, as well as one used for the job chart and bathroom sign out. Located on magnetic whiteboards (or other magnetic surfaces), I can easily rearrange the magnets to show groups or students move their magnets to show what step they are on according to the written agenda. Having the student move his own magnet on the agenda list helps them stay on track, helps the teacher see the progress students are making, and adds a little movement break for the student during longer workshops.

Great classroom teaching tool
I teach first grade and every morning when the children arrive, this is one of their activities. I love it because it corresponds to the graphs that we study in our Math curriculum and they have become very comfortable making observations and using the appropriate language and terms related to graphs. We discuss the results during our morning meeting.I have also made this one of my classroom jobs so each week one student gets to prepare the question at the end of the day for the next morning. You can see in the picture how it easily fits on the side of my filing cabinet.
