My mom called and said my estranged uncle needed my love. What do you do if students do not complete their homework on time, or if a student never completes his/her homework assignments? I am finishing up my junior year in college, studying childhood and special education.When should you contact the parents and make them aware of the situation? I will be student teaching next spring, and this has been one of my major concerns.it’s a pretty believable one.5#Ah, I thought I thought it was in my bag, but it looks like I left it at home by accident.-Of course you left it at home by accident!This one is a great excuse, it has worked a fair few times for me.6# Now finally this is the best excuse for not doing your homework-MY DAD FORGOT TO DO IT FOR ME!!!Blaming the printer is either a useless idea, the teacher might ask you to send the homework by e-mail, not in hard copy.That awkward moment…“My dad is a famous developer, the information on his computer was very important so it was stolen by the Chinese hackers”!My mum accidentally put it in the recycling This really and truthfully did happen to me in Year 3. My mum threw it away during her Sunday morning cleaning frenzies. Dad put my homework in the wash You did it, but it happened to fall on the floor and got scooped up with the dirty washing… Bring in some paper that has actually been through the wash so it looks like you’ve genuinely done it and tried to recover it. I stayed up too late studying for the test “I was so worried about the maths test on Thursday that I got carried away practicing and couldn’t do my homework! You’re not really going to give me a detention for knowing my eight-times table, are you? “I forgot to do my homework” or “I forgot I had a homework” is one of the popular hw excuses and yes, it sounds hardly excusable, only if you manage to convince the teacher you have severe memory loss.“I didn’t do my homework because my laptop died”- one of the simplest excuses is a malfunctioning device, thus, it is also overused and overrated.
