This form has been a lifesaver in my classroom!
Students who don't have an assignment must complete one of these forms and turn it in instead of their work. It's beneficial for three reasons:
1) It requires that they examine their own work and study habits.
2) It still keeps them in the habit of handing something in.
3) It allows me to keep a comprehensive record of missing work. When parents or students come in for meetings, these forms can be extremely helpful.
