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, as well as answer keys for each activity where an answer key is applicable.
-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 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: Fraction story problems, order of operations review, and multiplication and division practice (3 separate activities)
-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 line plot about high/low temperatures to answer questions using the graph.
-BONUS ACTIVITY: Students use critical thinking skills, word play, and creativity to complete this activity if needed.
