Keep yourself and your students organized when assignments are not turned in.
-Students grab a LATE WORK form when the are not turning in an assignment on-time. This form serves as notice to the student to complete the work and turn it in on the agreed upon date. It also reminds the teacher that work is missing by having a paper with the student's name on it in the pile with the rest of the turned in papers. It's nice to have the visual reminder when grading and inputting grades at a later date.
Photocopy on colored paper and place in your student zone for easy pick-up by students.
