DIY Missing Work Folders

Pin It

Want an easy, no mess, no fuss way to keep your students organized and responsible for missing work when they are absent.  Try a "While You Were Out Folder"!




 

Items to Gather:

  • two pocket folder
  • checklist sheet
  • glue

 Instructions:



Step 1: Glue a checklist sheet to the front of a two pocket folder (see the picture above)

Step 2:  Laminate.

Step 3: On the inside, write "Complete and Return" on one side of the folder.  Then write, "Keep at Home" on the other side of the folder.





Step 4: When a student is absent, place the work that is being missed for the day in the folder.  Using a wet erase marker, write the work that needs to be completed on the checklist.  (This one was made on Vista Print.)



Step 5: When the student returns, the folder has all of the work they missed and need to complete.  No missing work, no fuss, no mess.


   Other Tips/Suggestions:


I usually have about 10 of these premade.  I made the checklist on Vista Print, but you can just as easily make one on the computer, or even just put a piece of lined paper there!  This is a super easy way to keep your students organized and responsible for missing work.
