What do you do when students are absent? Do they have to make up classwork or homework or do you just let it go? If you have them make up classwork, do they do it in class? And if they do it in class, are you sitting with them to offer assistance since they missed the lesson? I find it very difficult to sit with one student to get him up to speed. Yes, I have paras, but since almost all my lessons are in small groups that are run by either myself or my paras, their time is spoken for as well as my own. However, if we don't make up for the missed instruction, then the child is a step behind and I can't really hold him accountable for the material when I test. I particularly struggle with how to handle absences that last two or more days. I'm just wondering if you have a system in place for dealing with missed instruction. Thanks.
