What to do about students losing copies of worksheets or they are absent?

I got so tired of making copies and trying to keep up with absent student work. Being ADD I am all over the place and tend to miss a detail or two. So, my solution is a binder and paper coordinator. I have jobs for everything in my class. It supports responsibility, frees me up to teach and gives students a sense of community.

My paper coordinator passes out all paper. Then, I have a binder with clear sheets that contains all papers passed out for the week. All extra copies are placed in the binder and the last one has the words,  “Last Copy” in yellow highlighter written on it.

ABinder student can take a copy until they get to this page. When they see this they have to hand copy the entire sheet onto notebook paper to turn in.

It is amazing how no one loses their papers anymore!
