Oh, the dreaded questions that students ask after being absent: "Did we do anything (important) yesterday?" "What did I miss?"
No teacher wants to deal with answering these questions at the beginning of class each day! It takes up precious time and allows for disruption in the classroom and in the lesson. With this system, all you have to do is point to this user-friendly station in your classroom. Students will find a summary of what they missed and be able to pick up any necessary handouts or worksheets. I spend a good amount of time in the first few days of school explaining how to use this station. The students eventually will not come to you at all for this information because they will know where to go...
Includes detailed instructions on how to organize this station in your classroom. Also included are printable titles for signs and a template for your weekly summary/agenda.
I have used this system for 20 years in my classroom! It has been a lifesaver (well, at least a timesaver for sure!) My colleagues have borrowed this idea and use it as well!
