This no prep, emergency sub plan packet includes activities to cover ALL major content areas on a sub day. (Math, Reading, Grammar, Spelling, Writing, Science, Social Studies, plus bonus activities!) It is a good fit for 3rd grade students at any time of the year. The activities are simple enough for the beginning of the year, yet good review for mid-end of the year. Directions and "fast finisher" ideas are provided for the sub for each activity.
-WRITING: A creative writing prompt: Where do you think your teacher really is today?
-SPELLING: Use a secret code to determine how many points each spelling word is worth. (This is still a fun and mathematical activity if students don't have spelling words!)
-READING: A reading comprehension passage with questions is included as well as a reading log to fill out after silent reading to ensure students were engaged in their reading. (This works for assigned reading or student-chosen silent reading books alike!)
-GRAMMAR: A proofreading passage
-MATH: Three math activities (write fractions to describe a picture, addition and subtraction practice, and multiplication facts practice)
-SOCIAL STUDIES: Includes a news article and current events worksheet for students to fill out identifying main idea, details, and more!
-SCIENCE: Students analyze a bar graph about weather temperatures to answer questions using the graph.
-BONUS ACTIVITY: Students use critical thinking skills, word play, and creativity to complete this bonus activity if needed.
