In frequented place in the classroom, have a big calendar with important classroom dates. Then, you could have smaller calendars for each class that list both unit days and assignments without handouts. Then, students check the calendar to see what unit day they missed, and beneath the calendar, they can find extra handouts in labeled folders in a crate. Nice!
W. history classroom My absent board- Within each bin are Manila files and hanging folders. I label the file with the date, add extra copies of work in the file and, place it in the correct class bin. The calendar stays current with the daily agenda. I bought the plastic table cloth for 1.99 and the wrapping paper at 50% off (after Christmas) at Hobby Lobby. I bought the calendars at Fry's food & drug for 2.99 each. They're dry erase peel and stick!
