Have you ever gone to school sick because it was easier than putting together sub lesson plans
Have you ever not enjoyed a personal day because so much time and stress was put into preparing for being out of the classroom?
This resource changes that! These no prep, print-and-go activities make it so much easier for teachers to be absent! Having a collection of reusable activities for math, reading, writing, word study and science that can be done at any time in the school year will give you peace of mind knowing that everything is ready when you need it…even if that is unexpectedly at 4 a.m.!
You’ll only need to add a book of your choice, dice, and a pencil. It doesn’t get easier than this.
THE BENEFITS OF THIS RESOURCE:
✓ They will save you TONS OF TIME. The No-Prep Design makes it quick and easy to assemble weeks worth of sub plans in a very short time.
✓ The activities were specially designed in a way that allows you to use the same sheet over and over throughout the year.
✓ Because they can be used multiple times your students become familiar with the expectations of each task which decreases student anxiety and potential behavioral issues in your absence.
✓ Each activity is purposeful so the students will have meaningful learning while you are out.
✓ When you or a family member is sick you can focus on what is truly important and need to cough, sneeze, and wheeze your way through writing sub plans in the middle of the night.

REAL TEACHER TESTIMONIALS
• I can't thank you enough for this AMAZING packet. I LOVED it when I was putting it together, but the true joy came when I got food poisoning on a school night. In the past I would've needed to show up to school sick and miserable so you can only imagine how grateful I was to know these AWESOME plans were sitting on my desk waiting.
• After 22 years of teaching I finally have a reliable system in place for being out of the classroom. These activities are great, but the real value comes from the great care and detail you took in explaining exactly what the guest teacher should be doing. A monkey could've come in and taught the class while I was out thanks to the binder you helped me put together.
• I bought these plans so I would be ready for a sub in a pinch. I didn't anticipate I would actually need them though. Well I did and they came through for me big time. Last month I passed out in the classroom and was taken to the hospital by ambulance where I stayed overnight for observation. Because it was a true emergency situation my principal subbed for the rest of the day and my AP had to sub the next day. In the past I would've looked unprepared. Instead I was praised for being so prepared and administration has since purchased your emergency plans for all the teachers in my school.
