    Absent Work

    This is going to be my 4th year teaching and here is what has worked out really well with my 6th graders so far:
    I have 4 classes so I have a crate for each class. Inside each crate, I have hanging file folders, one for each student. At the beginning of the year, when we are going over procedures, I make it very clear that when students are absent, I have a responsibility and so do they. Mine is to put any work that they missed into their folder. Theirs is to check their folder as soon as they return to school for that missing work. If there is nothing in there, then they may ask me. It takes a little time to get used to but by a few weeks into the year, most of my students know what to do!
