I have no idea what other schools do, but when we have students who are assigned to ISS (In-School Suspension), an office helper (student) comes around asking for work. Now, I don't always have a WORKSHEET to give and I only have enough books for my classroom so I can't send any books out to ISS. And, even if I did have a worksheet to give at that moment, the student very well may not know how to do it b/c they are missing instruction! What do you do? I have left packets of work before, but the students end up writing on them (I usually put "DO NOT WRITE ON THIS SHEET" across the top but the ISS monitor doesn't enforce it) OR my packets get passed out to EVERYONE in ISS (not just my students) and there's not enough left the next time I have a student in there. Other ideas?
