Brilliant, consistent, and someone made it up for me :) Put an absent folder on my absent student's desk. The students at their table will make sure they get all of the work we do that day put in their folder. Check their folder at the end of the day and make sure there are not tests or activities that can only be done whole class. Then, when that student returns the next day, they put their folder in their backpack. The instructions to the parents are on the folder.
