Fill out the weekly assignment sheet and use it for students that are absent multiple days.
I use it for homework requests from parents, students that go on vacation, or for students requesting work ahead of time.
I fill out the sheet and make multiple copies. I can then just fill in the student's name and not the additional information.
I use a hanging file system in the front of the classroom with daily absent work. If a homework request is made I can pull absent work from the file system and attach it to the weekly assignment sheet. The process takes maybe 2 minutes to get the work together- using this form and the hanging file system has made absent work a lot easier to manage!
