Emergency! Red Alert! Are you going to be absent from your Grade 6-9 Math classroom for several days or a full school week+, don't have the time to plan for your absence, and in need of a full set of "printable/no prep" Middle School-level lessons for your substitute or for an emergency sub folder? Then look no further!
This is a teacher and student-friendly collection designed to make any five+ days of absence from middle school math class a breeze for you to plan AND engaging for your Grade 6-9 students!
Each of these ELEVEN engaging activities can be used individually, with partners, or in larger groups, and they require no special effort or skill for a sub to implement. Each resource takes between 20-60 minutes to complete, depending on student ability.
You can be sure your middle school students will be busy working on age-appropriate and interesting math activities AND reviewing their basic skills while you are gone, and isn’t that what we all want as teachers when planning an absence?
