Absent Bin…an easy way to make students responsible for getting make-up work. Great idea! Any extra copies go to the “extra copies” bin by the door. This might make for a more independent classroom though!
work flip signs: one side says "I need help," another side says "I'm working hard," last side says "I'm finished." Helps with monitoring progress and (hopefully) keeps students from getting out of their seats/shouting out your name constantly.
