In the past, I have resorted to my mortal enemy to help those who miss the big events in my class. Despite my hatred, and despise, I hand my lost students over to... the textbook. It is always with regret that I reach over to the dusty pile of books and pull one out, searching for the appropriate pages, to hand to the student who has missed it all. But what else could I do?
Then it hit me...
I have many followers of my TpT Store that comment on how they love my "Walking Tours" and Centers activities. But, they too, have struggled with how to work the "make-ups" for those who miss the lessons. Still, it didn't click. Then I had a fellow teacher tell me she loved my activities, but there are some topics she just needs a quick fix for with all of the required testing and other time her classes must spend off the normal schedule. Ah, ha!
At first, I thought I would call them "One Page Wonders." A quick coverage of the key facts on specific topics in history. Other teachers (and workbook publishers and textbook companies) call them handouts or worksheets. I finally decided on (after being unable to get it down to "one page") "Front & Back" Reading Assignments!
