Keeping track of unfinished work?

I work with 2nd graders. I have a wide range of skills (speed). I need a way to keep track of unfinished work without having to necessarily correct everything immediately. I often lose track when moving on to the next thing.

Thanks!

You could try a folder for each subject.

I like checklists by the turn-in bins. - You can probably get three to a page.

Staple them to an extra copy of the assignment (if it's a worksheet) or to some sort of title/instruction page (for writing assignments, etc.)

Students highlight their name as the item is turned in, and you can change the color of the highlighter to track on-time vs. late.

I used cltothespins with their name on it. When they were finished, they clipped their work together. Unfinished means the clothespin was still on top of the basket for turn in work.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question correctly. Are you looking for a way to see which students still need to finish their work? If so, you can hang a manilla pocket folder to the front of each student's desk. This allows them to store their unfinished work in the folder and you can easily peek inside each one to see who still needs to complete an assignment.

i teach 3rd and have done all of the above.

Last year I just started having them turn it in when it was due, finished or not. Many times this means at the end of the session it was passed out. Most of the times, the kids who don't finish never have time to go back and finish things because they don't finish anything.

This allows me to decide what gets finished when there is time to finish. I can give grades on what they do finish, and gives me talking points for conferences with student and parents.

I took over a class where the teacher had unfinished folders in one place. Some of the kids had work from the beginning of the year (this was in Jan) and the folder was an inch thick. Nobody needs that hanging over their heads.

Evaluate the importance of the activity. Sped students shouldn’t be having to makeup “filler” assignments. Also if they’re not done when typical peers are maybe a para or small group is the right place for the work to be done.

I have a Ketchup (catch up) folder for stuff. Usually it’s cut/paste or extra stuff. They do that when they’re done. The only thing that usually lasts a few days in their folder is multi-day activity Work.

Totally agree. I had some pack rats and would often clear out their folders. Some
Kids never go back to the ketchup folder.
