⭐⭐Motivate and engage your students with these fun no games that require little or no preparation. Perfect for Morning Meeting activities⭐⭐

Fun Friday games, rewards and brain breaks, this NO-PREP game bundle is highly motivating for your students.

✅From time to time, as relief teachers we will go to a classroom and find that there is no lesson plan waiting. If you are familiar with the subject at hand, you can typically use the textbook as a basis for a lesson about the topic currently being taught. However, an issue arises when you know little about the class's subject.

✅It can be even worse when you have no textbook available for review.  

Make learning fun, because so long as the students view you positively, you can be confident of call backs.

⭐Improvising for Relief Teachers ⭐

✅It is best to come prepared for the worst with activities and ideas of things to do with students which will engage and keep them on task. Obviously, it is always best to relate any work that you give to the subject if you can, but if not, it is still important to keep students busy and on task. In terms of classroom management, the worst thing to do is to just let them talk. This can often lead to either disruption within the class or even worse noise levels that disturb neighbouring teachers. 

✅These curriculum ideas for activities will help you succeed as a relief teacher in this type of situation. Several of these suggestions include games.

✅There are countless skills that students can develop through game playing such as critical thinking skills, creativity, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.

There are opportunities for the students to practice speaking and listening skills when games are played individually or in groups. 

✅Obviously, you will need to use your best judgment about which will work with a class of students. It is also best to prepare with several of these as backups, just in case one is not working as well as you think it should. You can also get student input on which they would like to do.  

✅They are great fun, and I have tried every one of them in my classes.

Quickly and easily plan an activity, physical education lessons or math and spelling game with these NO PREP ideas.

✅We all need to have these games up our sleeve for those lessons that may run short by 10-15 minutes, or as a brain break.

This booklet is a must have for any teacher working as a Substitute or Relief Teacher.

✅Easy to implement (simply have the PDF on your phone or external drive for easy reference)
