bcteach is happy to provide a tool that will allow for a smooth transition for your students when you need to take a day off. Preparing for an absence can be challenging, but these helpful hints and checklist will give your substitute everything he/she needs to manage your classroom. When I was a substitute teacher, I appreciated being provided with as much information as possible from the permanent teacher. You want your students and your substitute teacher to have a great classroom experience. I am offering this as my first free item because I think EVERY teacher should have this tool!
