Get your students informed and to work as soon as they arrive to class. This middle school message board shows what to do, reminders, and the agenda for the day. The other thing it displays is the work that will be collected for the week. Not only does this help with students who are absent (now they know what they missed without being told), but it helps students know what will be expected of them for the week.
The PowerPoint is fully editable and you can add what you need. For Math you may add a problem of the week.
