KETCHUP folder

When students are out sick, it's hard to keep track of work they miss.  The "Ketchup Folder" is a tool that helps me manage the chaos.
Place a "Ketchup" folder on a student's desk in the morning when you notice they are absent.  When you hand out assignments, simply slide one in to the folder.  (*Assign a student to do this.  They love to help!*)
I chose YELLOW folders because they stand out in the classroom since my take-home folders are always green.  This helps me see the folder, especially when they turn it back in with their completed assignments.  Download the template for FREE by visiting my TpT store!
Side note...I usually make and laminate about TEN of these folders at the beginning of the year.  Inevitably, some of the folders will get "lost" or you will have multiple kiddos absent on the same day.
Hope you like this classroom management idea!  Leave me some love in the comments if you do.  :)

Need some labels to organize your classroom supplies and manipulatives?
These are EDITABLE!  Hooray!
