As I'm sitting home sick today, I began thinking of many students in my classroom who are gone A LOT on Fridays. There is one student in particular who has been gone every Friday except ONE this year! So, he only as 1 test grade so far for the quarter in Reading and Math. I would like to hear other teacher's takes on what kinds of things you do when faced with this situation? Do you begin giving them zeros after so many absences? Do you send the tests home? Do you have them do them on their own time (during recess without any assistance?) * I would have my students stay in at recess to do them but I have so many low kids that it would end up eating my time as I read the questions and answer choices to them... Any helpful suggestions will be welcomed!
