Basically each student is listed then by their name is 3 small boxes ( 3 restroom passes a nine weeks) when they go to the restroom I "x" a box. Then following that is a larger box to mark attendance for Monday and a smaller box to put their grade for homework. Then the bigger, smaller boxes repeat for each day of the week. This way on Friday I go to the grade book and run down the list and put in all the homework grades for the week quickly ( because its already alphabetized) and then I mark the "x"s in their boxes in the file i print each Monday so I don't have to hand do it each week. I keep these page until the end of the year.
I may made it sound complicated but it isn't. There are now several teachers in my building that use it too. I emailed them the format and they just filled it in with their students names. If you would like to see just inbox me. I can't send it right now bc my power supply to my laptop is down and I can't get on it but as soon as I run and get a new one I can email you the format as an attachment.
