I don't know about you, but I really don't enjoy listening to all of the excuses that students have for missing homework! It takes up precious time in my day. So if a student does not have their homework, I simply fill in the name, date, and missing assignment on this sheet and give it to the student to fill out and have signed by a parent that evening. That way the parents are also seeing what their child's excuse is for not having their homework! This has helped me stay organized and helped students to be more accountable for their own choices! I hope you find this to be a handy tool in your classroom!
