This is a missing homework alert slip that can be stapled into a child's homework book or sent home in a homework folder. I made them especially skinny and long so they'd pop out the top of my students' homework journals like a book mark. These are fully editable.
Some teachers feel it's important to give a consequence from day 1 when a student forgets a homework assignment. There are situations where that may not be possible or where the consequence is pretty severe. So I created these as a way to bridge the gap here and to build homework responsibility for my younger students -- I stapled three of these into the back of each of my students' homework journals at the start of the year. These basically served as 3 'freebie' reminders, and once I used up the third one, they received a consequence for each late or missing homework thereafter.
