This helpful, comprehensive, customizable resource binder has 30+ pages to make sure your substitute is prepared for ANYTHING that comes their way while you're away.
As a substitute, I had often walked in to a new classroom with many questions. What happens if there is inside recess? What students have allergies? How come this student is saying they have a music lesson... do they? Wait... we're going on a FIELD TRIP??
I discovered that substitutes need MUCH more information than a class roster and lesson plans! So, when I had my own classroom, I made sure that my subs knew the answer to those questions and more. With this binder, you can relax knowing that your substitute knows the answers, too!
With This Purchase You Will Get:
This fun, bright, animal print themed, comprehensive planner comes jam packed! This purchase includes TWO versions - a PDF and a PowerPoint with text boxes provided for your convenience. This is to accommodate those who like to type notes, and those who would prefer to handwrite them!
PLUS! I've now added a FULLY editable PowerPoint schedule file, so that you can totally customize your class schedule! Now you have 2 weekly schedule formats to choose from:
+Schedules with times included (to the half hour) which can be found in the PDF and PowerPoint file
+Blank pages for you to put in your own schedule times, which can be found in the add-on PowerPoint file in the Zip folder.
***Please note that you MUST have the capability to open and use PowerPoint (.ppt) documents in order to be able to use the editable versions!!!***
The binder is broken up into 6 sections, each with its own cover page to keep things organized. The sections are:
Binder Cover Page (fully customizable AND pre-made versions included)
Rules, Procedures, and Routines
Schedules and Plans
Substitute Recording Sheets
Some of the topics within each section include:
Class Rules/Behavior Plan/Consequences
Attendance and Lunch Count
Going to Lunch/Specials/Recess
Daily, Specials, and Students' Schedules
Important Names and Numbers
Drills and Emergencies
Field Trip Information
Allergy Alert Sheet
Classroom Map (for showing where supplies are)
Substitute Note Sheets
I recommend printing this out and storing in page protectors within a 3 ring binder to keep things organized and durable. Most components can be used year after year! Some pages will need to be printed a few times depending on the number of students you have in your class. While this resource has anything you could need to tell a substitute, it does NOT include any lesson plans!
This file is zipped file. Download the .zip file, double click to unzip, and a file folder will appear. The file folder will contain the two versions of the journal, plus the add-on blank schedule file!
With the editable version, I provide the exact same version as the PDF file. However, the editable version has text boxes for you to type, instead of write, your information. I understand how precious time is for teachers, so it is meant to save YOU time! Please understand that due to copyrights of the graphic artists whose work I use, I am NOT able to offer the following:
+products with covers/column headers/information changed
Again, I do understand the need for editable/customizable products, and I love offering these to you to accommodate the needs of all buyers! Please just understand that I cannot sell or offer blank/custom versions, and that the editable versions are the SAME as the PDF with the ability to type your information to save YOU time! I have added the editable schedule pages, to hopefully accommodate the need for editable versions as much as I can! Thanks so much! :)
***YOU MUST have the ability to open and use PowerPoint in order to use the editable version!! Please ensure that you can do this prior to purchase! ALSO, when printing the PowerPoint version, if the background images do NOT print normally, please make sure you have your printer settings set to print as image
so that it prints how it looks!***
When you miss school, you have enough to worry about without worrying whether or not your sub has what they need to get through the day. Check out the FREE preview to see more!
