In an effort to keep track of late assignments or homework not handed in, I have decided to try something new this year: the ‘I didn’t do my homework folder’.
I came across it on Pinterest, via the blog Teach-Bake-Love and thought it would be a great idea to try out.
This is my twist on it, to fit my to be Travel theme this year:
Security Check, warning! 👨🏽✈️👩🏻✈️🤚🏽
This is how it works:
Children write down the date and name of any assignment that has not been completed or handed it in by the due date. They write down their excuse/reason and they will be informed that their parents will be shown this, during the Parent-Teacher meetings. Each child will have a page of their own, to keep better track of who is being responsible and who isn’t. The teacher can then assign a lunch detention if there have been consecutive occurrences of them not handing in something, and keep track of how many times that pupil isn’t completing or turning in an assignment.
I love this idea, as it encourages pupils to take the time to think about their excuse and know that they will also have to justify it to their parents later. It is also a great tracking document to have as proof of inconsistency, which will also help when filling out reports.
