Have you ever been sick and went in because it was too much work to put together sub plans? I have. This is why I put together a basic template for myself, and would like to share it with you.
This template is customizable for your own classroom and also has super basic 4 reading (Book Talks, Asking Questions, Goal Setting) and 4 writing lessons (generating/collecting, drafting a letter, editing) that will work if you use a workshop framework for teaching balanced literacy (like me), or could be applied to your own classroom as something "fun" to do.
There is space for important phone numbers, student helpers, space for students with services, teacher helpers, allergies, roster, and a welcome page.
Like I mentioned in the title and in the sample, the template is void of graphics, color, and uses a thin font so it won't eat all your ink or your teacher friend's printer when they print the file for your sub. :)
Please let me know if you have ideas for something I could or should add into the file and I will update it.
Just print, staple, and leave packet on your work area.
File is MS PowerPoint for click and type. 18 pages.
