I work at a title 1 school where attendance is a big issue.
I created data binders to help track students progress in all the subjects.
I then had the idea to make attendance sheets to go in the binders. I figured if I'm already tracking everything else to show the parents I should do this too.
Well it turned out to be a HUGE success!!
It led to students led conferences.
Students were taking charge of their own attendance.
Students were bugging their parents to get to school.
I teach kindergarten, so this was amazing to see the attendance improvement! Before I would make excusses for them "they're too young" or "they can't get themselves out of bed". They can though! and they do!
I am so excited to share this with you! It can be used at all grade levels.
Hope this helps!!
