Tired of papers all over a student's desk when their absent? Need a way to keep your sanity and stay organized? This absent folder has helped me dramatically in my classroom. Simple laminate the papers to the front of a manila envelope, laminate, and you're ready to go.
When a student is absent, simply put all their missed work in the folder so that when they come back all they have to do is put the folder in their backpack!
Worried that they won't know what needs completed and returned and by what date? No worries! I've included a makeup memo for those of you that want to write down the assignments and when they need to be returned. You can put this on top of all of the missed work in the folder and both parents and students will know what is expected of them. They just return the folder with the completed work by the due date.
