I created this for my classroom for the kiddos that were not bring back their homework each day. Any kid that is missing a homework assignment has their own sheet. Any time homework is not returned, they date the log and give the reason. I found this to be a great way to keep track of who was continuously missing assignments and a great tool to use when talking to parents.
I print multiple copies of the log page, hole punch them, and keep them in a binder. The cover, I slide into the clear plastic part of the binder.
