Absent Students - Work

I currently use a system for students who are absent. I put their work in a folder and they look for the folder when they return to school. However, we often do things that are not on paper (continue to read our novel, take notes, etc.)


I was considering buying a small white board to put on the wall near the absent folders, and writing each day's work on there.


However, this seems like a lot of work!


Wondering what you use for students that are absent.

This is what I did in intermediate.

I had a daily helper who completed a log. I've attached a picture. The helper recorded who was absent, and their number, and wrote brief notes about the assignment while we went through class. The area beside social studies activity might say "read pages 122-128. Add to interactive notebook." This log went into the front of a binder.

The binder stayed in a file crate, and each student had a file in the file crate. All copies/makeup work went into that folder. The helper did this too. I had three classes, so there were three file crates and binders. It helped that everything went into the folder. If Kayla was absent for three days, there was three days worth of work in her folder, and she needed to see 3 days of logs. The entire quarter's worth of logs stayed in the binder.

I donít deal with it. I make sure all the papers are on their desk. Theyíre responsible for asking a classmate what they missed. They either do or they donít. I teach 3rd.

If I really need an assignment from them (a test, etc) Iíll ask them for it.

Iíve done it different ways. When my class was a three way combo class I passed out a half sheet asssignment page each week that had all book work and reading assignments for the week on it. The kids stapled them I to their folders.

When I was only 1-2 grades at a time, I had a basket of assignment sheets on the counter. One kid per grade level was in charge of absent kidsí assignments for their grade level. They would copy the daily assignments first thing of the day into their own planners and then onto the assignment sheet for the missing child. The assignment sheet and any worksheets would be placed in a file folder for the kid to get when they came back.

The sheet would say something like:
* Reading story ______________ pg ___-___
* Spelling and Vocabulary WB pg _____
* Additional spelling or story vocabulary activity: _____________________________
* CLAS WB pg _____
* Grammar pg ____-____
* Writing lesson: (check all that apply)
___ skill lesson pg ____
___ KWO pg _____
___ Rough draft
___ peer/teacher conference
___ final draft
___ presentation
* Greek and Latin Roots Lesson ____ activity ____
* Science reading pg ____-____
* Science lab activity ___________________
* Science WB pg _____ #____-____
* Math Lesson Unit _____ Lesson _____, WB pg ___-___, Homelink ________
* History Lesson Unit ____ Lesson ____: (check all that apply)
___ reading pg _____-_____
___ activity book pg ____-____
___ timeline book pg ____
___ map skills book pg ____

I place papers on absent studentís desks. Iíll either have them returned completed or not. I donít worry about it.

I always tell parents that much of our daily work cannot be translated into homework so daily attendance is best.

Most of our lessons spiral so the absent child will get exposure at some point.

Most of what I do isn't anything I can send home. Kindergarten happens in real time. If you're not there, you miss it.

It is the student’s responsibility to come to see me to ask what they missed while they were gone. They have the same number of days they were gone to make up the work. And work that was due in their absence is due upon their return.

I have an “extra copies” folder where they can get any material they missed and it is their responsibility to get notes or other information from classmates.

When I taught second grade, I didn’t really bother with make up work, because I wasn’t allowed to take away anything I get them caught up and I didn’t have any extra time in which to get them caught up.
