Need a place to put work students miss when they are absent or out of class? Want to make your students responsible for completing missed work? These folders work great! They are called ‘While I Was Gone’ folders rather than absent folders because students do not always miss work because they are absent from school. Many times they are at school, but pulled out for a variety of reasons.
Just print out and glue onto a file folder. Laminate and you are ready to go! Place the folder on the student's desk when they are absent or out of class (I have this as a job on my job chart for students to do) and the absent child checks it when they come back to find all the work they missed. Simple and easy all while teaching responsibility!
There are both boy and girl versions, along with two different choices for borders.
