In celebration of back-to-school, I'm knocking a dollar off for a limited time.
Using Absent Folders
, is my all-time FAVORITE classroom management tip
You will LOVE this idea, as it's so easy to implement
& such a hassle-free time saver
Simply choose the folder cover(s) you like, print, glue to a file folder & laminate. You're done! Use them every year
When a child is absent put a folder on their desk. When you pass out a worksheet, the student who sits in front of them, puts a copy inside the folder.
If you're working in a workbook, tear out those sheets & include them. (No more writing down a list of what pages, in what workbooks they need to do.)
Any notes being sent home that day also get tossed inside. The folder remains on their desk 'til they return, with each day's work paper clipped.
Now if a sibling pops in at the end of the day, or the office calls at the last minute that a parent has come to pick up assignments, you just take the "stuff" out of the folder, add a little get well note (I have 14 to choose from) & you're done!
No more frantic craziness at the end of the day when you're busy getting your kiddos ready for dismissal.
The packet includes:
* 34 cover options
(Some cutesy & some for older grades)
* 14 "get well"
plus "we miss you" notes.
(Because children are absent for lots of reasons. I included these because there were many times I wanted to include a little note or card to make an ill child smile, but just didn't have the time or resources.)
for your basket.
for your notes.
* several options for "due date" notes
