Unfinished Work Tip: Worksheets no longer get lost or forgotten with this attractive solution. Give each student a magnetic clip for her desk and have her attach any unfinished work to her clip. Not only will she know where to find the paper to finish it, but it's easy to estimate how many students need to complete an assignment.

educationofali:  from-student-to-teacher:  Absent Bin…an easy way to make students responsible for getting make-up work (I already do this!!!)  I make my students come to me and ask for their assignments.  I have a folder at my desk where everything goes.  Any extra copies go to the “extra copies” bin by the door.  This might make for a more independent classroom though!  Great idea about how to deal with absent students.

I want to put one of these in my room, but with a folder behind each title.  In the folders I would put various blank outlines, special drafting paper, peer editing sheets, editing mark cards, etc.

First day of school!  Students receive play dough and a writing paper.  They make something from the play dough and write about it while the teacher is managing the details of the first day.  Great idea!
