This is a form I have adapted to record classwork, homework, and activities for students who are absent.
In my classroom, I have a "Make-Up Work Recorder" who is responsible for filling out the form and including papers for each absent student in their class period. There is a spot for the Recorder to sign at the bottom of the form.
On this form, you can record any and all work that was completed in the classroom that day. There is a spot to write all absent students names and then a spot for absent students to sign once they have checked the binder/folder and gathered their work.
