    I have lost a worksheet that I used to have my students complete on the first day of school. It was one of those worksheets that you give kids, specifically telling them to read all questions first before answering anything. I'm sure you all have seen them...the worksheet is long, but the last question asks the student to simply put their name on the top of the page and skip all other questions. :) It always drove home the point about not getting in a rush to complete assignments. Does anyone know where to get a copy of this? I could make up another, but am feeling a little lazy......
