Absent Work Folders-Chevron Backgrounds

Hello friends! I wanted to let you know I have made a set of Absent Folders with Chevron Backgrounds for those of you interested. I LOVE LOVE LOVE using Absent Folders in my classroom.There are 7 different color chevron backgrounds to choose from. Click on the picture to take you to them in my store:) 

 Below is an old post of how I use Absent Folders in my room:

 I spent a long time trying to come up with an easy system when my kids were absent. I feel like I tried everything, and I STILL had a hard time getting work turned in! SO I finally got smart, and created Absent Folders! I'm sure this isn't a new concept to anyone, but it made me so happy to discover them! When a kiddo is absent, the Absent Folder (along with the Absent Work page) is place on their desk. It stays there all day long so any papers I pass out make it in there. When the student returns, they simply take out all the work in the Absent Folder and return the folder to me. 
I made these pages that are glued on top of regular file folders.

Here is a picture of the folder in use on a student's desk! 
Here is a preview of the Absent Work page. This is where all the assignments are written down, and the parent is expected to sign it! 

   All of my kids have classroom jobs, and one job is for a person to put Absent Folders on desks, and fill out the Absent Work page. If more than two kids are absent in one day, I will help that person fill out the Absent Work pages. I've placed copies of my absent work file in my TPT store here. You can get a copy of 8 different file folder covers and the Absent Work page. This is a preview below of the pages!
