I'm having issues with kids not remembering assignments. I have a calender in the room that I remind them to check daily. They all have agenda books provided by the school and must bring them to each class (this serves as their restroom pass out of the room.) Should I dedicate a few minutes to "agenda book time" where we all write in our agenda books what is due the next day, or is this babying them too much? (I teach 7th and 8th grade.) I know that teachers will not do this for them when they go to high school. How do you *teach* organization? It's just mind boggling sometimes that after repeated reminders I still have kids who, once they've realized that they're missing an assignment, say things like, "Oh, we turned that in?" Um...have I EVER given an assignment that we DIDN'T turn in? Lol.
