Fill out yellow sheets and turn it in in place of missing assignment. Include assignment title, due date, and student signature. As students turn in late work, record the actual date the assignment is turned in and the number of points deducted.
I like how this classroom has a color theme and items like plants, curtains, and lamps to make it feel "homey." I also like the computer and library nooks- organized and out of the way, but still visible.
Want to have every student completely engaged, learning, and having controlled fun? Watch Andrea Schindler in this amazing Whole Brain Teaching video. It's several minutes long, but WELL worth the viewing.
