Use this for weekly attendance tracking and assignment log. I hang this by my crate with hanging files that have my extra copies (1-31 for days of the month). Each week a student or myself will log who was absent and what our agenda was for the day. The absent child can then come in and see what they missed.
The log stays in the binder for documentation (great for parent conferences and the occasional "I never got my absent work" excuse). I initial or highlight by their name when they retrieve their work.
*If you are in a lower grade (K, 1, 2, 3) you can keep the log at your desk.
