These 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 (better yet, Smartboard or Activeboard to display entire PDF folder of activities) The only supplies your kids need are pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue
All activities in this packet are connected to a BUGS theme. They're great for one full day for your sub teacher or your own teaching practice.
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.
Reader Response papers for students to write after they have read independently for 30 (or more) minutes. Students will draw or write about the characters, the plot, and the setting. These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
In math, students will make a bugs counting (1-10) book; add bugs (1-5), and subtract bugs (from 8) The counting book provides practice writing number words, 1-10.
In science, they will read and respond to comprehension questions about the spider and ladybug. In addition they will cut out and match flashcards for eight different species of bugs.
