This 3 in 1 Pack includes 3 full days for your substitute teacher. These very same individual full day plans (TWOS, BOATS, and BUTTERFLIES Themes) are also sold 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 full day includes: Morning and afternoon large group “messages” for students to complete and for the sub teacher to use as “get acquainted” and “end of day wrap up” meetings. Each message should take from 30 to 45 minutes of class time.
Fiction and Non-fiction Reader Response papers for students to write after they have read independently for 30 (or more) minutes. Students will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read a portion of a book or the whole thing. Non fiction readers will reord important facts learned and new words.
