This form has saved my life as a teacher! When my students are out, this form serves as a quick summary of everything we did during the day. Depending on your students, you can even have a reliable student helper complete these. If you have multiple absences in the same day, just complete one and make copies (if you have easy access to a copier). I have my student helper collect any worksheets, notes pages, etc. that are NOT graded and paper clip to this form. Any graded items go on my desk with the student's name on them. This helps the kids keep track of what they need to do when they return and use it as a checklist.
