This "While You Were Out" sheet is for you to use to help organize your absent student's work.
Here is how I used this sheet:
1) Print multiple copies of these sheets and keep them close to where you take role.
2) As you notice a student is absent, write their name and date on the top of the sheet.
3) While you work through your class period keep an extra worksheet, handout, etc for each absent student with this "While You Were Out" sheet.
4) At the end of the class period staple all papers together and put them in a convenient place for you to hand out once the student returns.
These simple sheets helped me keep missed work organized, hold the students accountable for their work and when it was due, and helped me not have to answer tons of questions during the class period. I hope they help you as much as they helped me! I would love to hear how you use these sheets in your class, please leave me feedback to let me know :).
