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!) 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 writing choice board of 9 different prompts for students to choose from. Line paper for writing is included in the packet if needed.
-SPELLING: Students choose a rule for sorting their spelling words. (alphabetical order, number of syllables, number of vowels, spelling pattern, etc.) Then students sort spelling words according to their rule. *This activity may still be completed without spelling words as students will be instructed to sort the names of their classmates.
-READING: 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: (3 activities)
-Multiplication & Division review
-Comparing decimals to the thousandths place
-Fractions (adding, subtracting, and multiplying)
-SOCIAL STUDIES: Includes a news article and current events worksheet for students to fill out identifying main idea, details, and more!
-SCIENCE: Students will determine if they possess certain genetic traits. (i.e. a widow’s peak, dimples, etc.) With the help of the sub, students will collect class data about these traits and see how they measure up to the general population!
-BONUS ACTIVITY: Students use a code (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc. to add up how many “points” different words are worth.
