Ready to use substitute lesson plans for a complete school day! As teachers we all know the truth. It is honestly easier to go ahead and drag yourself into school when sick or cancel the long over due appointment than it is to plan for a substitute during an emergency or planned absent. Substitute days are typically lost days. We try to come up with somewhat meaning instruction for someone else to complete with students. However, even the best substitute cannot read your mind (or your plan book) and many times you end up re-teaching the content anyway. As a teacher, you have an enormous amount of work to do and content to cover and can’t afford to miss any instructional days. In addition, those of you working as subs, have the daunting responsibility of reporting into a brand new job each day without the foggiest clue of what is in store for you. Your day becomes even more difficult when you are subbing for a foreign language class! These lesson plans were written for regular primary/elementary classrooms and substitute teachers.
Everything is written for you! All you need to do is program (this is an electronic copy so go ahead and type before printing) the class schedule, the class procedures sheet and the grade level lesson time periods for your specific classes so the sub knows when to do what, make class set of worksheet copies (if applicable), and then place the plans, copies and class rosters in a folder on your desk. That’s it! You can keep the plans on your desk for an emergency situation or use them for a scheduled absence. The only other materials you need to make sure the sub and students have access to are everyday desk/tub items such as pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, writing paper, construction paper and a white board or chalkboard. So, treat yourself and allow someone else to do the planning for you! You can pick and choose which lessons to include in your substitute folder for the day. This third grade level kit contains: The programmable information sheets, programmable class schedule, worksheet masters to be copied (Great Lakes cause and effect worksheet, The Pantry Ghosts poetry analysis worksheet, Describe how to make an ice cream cone writing prompt worksheet, Writer’s check list, Glyph worksheet, Glyph legend, and Drawing Stick Figures worksheet), 60-90 minute reading lesson (Poetry analysis and cause and effect), 45-55 minute math lesson (shoe glyph), 40-50 minute writing lesson (describe how to make an ice cream cone (using written format for high stakes tests), 30 minute spelling lesson (Spelling Detective Check game), 30 minute science lesson (Science Vocabulary Race game), 30 minute social studies lesson (Uhm! game), 30 minute art lesson (drawing stick figures using various lines), and 30 minute extension lesson (Backs to the Board game). The lessons are designed to be presented in a way consistent to the standard cycle of instruction.
