I don't know about you, but I detest writing down all that a student has missed while they were absent. I created these pages to help my students take more responsibility and to take one more thing off my plate.
In my classroom, we have two workers a day. They complete all of the classroom jobs. One of their jobs is to fill out this form for the absent student. They are also required to collect copies of all handouts for the absent student. At the end of the day, they staple them all together and place it on the absent student's desk.
I LOVE THIS SYSTEM! It has seeped me from answering for the millionth time, "Miss Shirin, what did I miss when I was gone!?" All I do is point them towards this packet!
You could easily adapt this for any classroom.
I hope you enjoy!
