This is helpful for you to know what students accomplished in centers during the week. I have a captain from each group initial to prevent students from just filling out the log. I only initial for the teacher station, which prevents interruptions. If a student is absent, I have them cross out the day and write down "absent." Students that leave the room for pull-outs can record that teacher's name under the teacher row if desired.
