What do you do/use to inform parents their child did not have their homework done? I use a simple slip that is printed on gold or yellow paper and I refer to it as the gold slip. The gold slip puts the responsibility back in the child's hands for informing his/her parents of the missing work. The child fills out the gold slip and brings it home to be signed by the parent. It is such a simple solution and holds the student accountable for the missing work.
I hope you find this freebie helpful!
