"Did we do anything when I was absent?"
"No, we just all sat around and waited for you to come back!"
If you are tired of the chaos and confusion that frequently comes with absences, use my template to organize missed work for your students! I have a file folder for each day of the week, so I simply clip notes/handouts to the template and place in the folder. Students are trained to look in the folder when they come back to class!
