This form can be used to hold students accountable for missing work. There are many products like this available. However, this form is geared specifically toward students in elementary grades who need to learn to be responsible for missing assignments, but who might not receive a lowered grade for late work (as many school districts' grading policies state.) In my classroom, when an assignment is due, students must turn in either the assignment OR this form, which then serves as a reminder to me that the work is missing. In addition, I send these forms home for a parent signature to keep the parent informed as well. To receive credit for the missing assignment, students must turn in this (signed) form with the assignment.
