This 3 in 1 Pack includes 3 full days for your substitute teacher. These very same individual full day plans, THINGS TO CLIMB THEME; BEARS AND B-WORDS THEME, AND P-WORDS THEME, are also sold as individual products in my store. All activities are ready to copy and go, without need for the sub to read lengthy directions. Explanations for students and for the sub are incorporated as scripts which headline some but not all worksheets. The only equipment your sub needs is a copy machine (Smartboard or Activeboard); the only supplies your kids need are pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue.
Each of the three days includes morning and afternoon messages to use as "get acquainted" and "end of the day wrap up" discussions; and Reader Response forms for students to write after they have read independently or with an adult for 30 minutes. On these forms, students will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read a chapter of the book or the entire book. These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
BEARS AND B-WORDS:
In math, they will solve addition and subtraction problems (through 10 or less). In writing they will review 9 different B-words, all nouns, and do worksheets matching pictures to word, labeling pictures, matching sentences to pictures, and
handwriting practice. They will cut out sentence words to form complete sentences.
In social studies they will read about the polar bear, black bear, and brown bear and make their own books about bears.
The subplanners skills builder page is included to provide practice with grade level language arts and math skills.
