More experienced teachers are much more difficult to fool and more likely to be bitter and jaded.
Experienced teachers have also heard most of the lame excuses you have planned. Know how strict your teacher is. I'll let you in on a teaching secret: They want to believe you stayed up all night nursing your sick hamster. Use this to your advantage. Find out if your teacher likes you. I'll let you in on another secret: Are you a favorite? If you are, use any excuse you like. Find out your teacher's interests.
Why else would they subject themselves to the torment that comes with instructing teenagers? They love talking about themselves. Listen when they do. I got my backpack stolen: No teacher in his right mind would expect you to turn in that big assignment if it got stolen the very day it was due. Although most teachers won't follow through, filing a missing backpack report might not be a bad idea.
My mom and dad got in a huge fight last night and the cops came and I couldn't concentrate on the assignment: Please note that while we value your input, we cannot respond to every message.

I Didn't Do My Homework Because is an imagined series of absurd excuses for why the protagonist didn't do his homework. (view spoiler)] Perfectly silly, with fantastic illustrations from Benjamin Chaud. A great gift for grade schooler and grad schooler alike/5.
I have a binder labeled appropriately, No, I didn't do my homework! Within the binder each student has their own recording sheet to keep track of the date, the "excuse" for not doing their homework and what the assignment was.4/5(24). I Didn't Do My Homework. Homework is an essential part of studying, from the elementary school to college. Being a student, I know you have done your fair share of homework so far. But sometimes, you may fail to do your homework. It may fail to be your fault as we all know life sometimes gets in the way of things.
I brought my students to the carpet and previewed the cover, asking them what their honest thoughts were on homework. We discussed the types of assignments they liked and the types they didn't like. Then, I asked students if any of them had ever forgotten to do their homework. My students went absolutely bananas for it! It's such a fun read-aloud, and they were roaring with laughter at each page/excuse. The end is so fun- I won't spoil it, but trust that it's funny! I had them make up their own funny excuse for not doing homework, and the winner received a 'no homework pass' for one night/5(22).
