This form is great for a middle school, single subject classroom. It allows you to quickly write out what activities/lessons the student missed when they were absent, any notes or information related to them, and when the assignment is due. There is also a nice section for any other comments or reminders. I usually paperclip the students work to this form and place it in the absent bin. This has been a great system so that students are accountable for the work they miss if they are gone. It is also a nice format so that the student can simply check off the assignments as he/she completes them.
