-Sometimes forget you gave a student an extension?
-Have students who turn in late work all the time
-Have parents who want to know about their child's study skills?
I use these slips in my classroom everyday! I simply print the slips on three different colors of card stock, cut in half, and place next to my homework bin. On the first day of school, I explain that students are responsible for attaching late slips to their work. I also show them the extension and redo slips. Students usually need reminders on these systems the first few assignments, but then take ownership after that. The slips save me having to remember what I verbally told a student three days ago about an assignment! Parents can also clearly get an idea of what organizational skills their child is having trouble with by looking for colored slips in their child’s homework folder. Easy!
