Looking for substitute plans that take absolutely NO preparation? Well, then these are the plans for you! This is a set of Emergency Sub Plans that require no copies. That’s right, students will be able to do all the work on lined paper and a piece of copy paper. You know what that means? It means that you can just email the plans to someone at school or quickly leave the plans on your desk and your students and sub will be set up for a great day! (This resource is SET TWO of the Emergency Sub Plans created in response to many teachers’ requests. You can find set ONE HERE.)

This resource is designed for a single ELA lesson.

How does it work?
• There are two files in this resource.
• One file is for you - the classroom teacher. In it you’ll find detailed information about every component of the resource that the substitute will be receiving in his/her file.
• The other file is for your substitute. Why two files? It’s designed this way so that you can simply email the substitute file to your school secretary or a helpful colleague and he/she can give the day’s plans and resources to your substitute. It couldn’t be easier!

Why isn’t there a file of worksheets for students?
• Here’s the best part...the entire 60-minute lesson about "extravagant celebrations" can be completed on 3 pieces of notebook paper and 1 piece of copy paper.
• That means that no one (specifically you) has to scurry around and make and organize copies for your students.
• Instead, students complete the highly engaging listening comprehension lesson and creative writing activity on their own notebook paper. So cool!
• Using the detailed lesson plans, the substitute will guide students through setting up each of their pages of paper.

What’s in each file?

Classroom Teacher File---This file contains an overview of everything designed for you, your substitute, and your students. There’s explanations and pictures of each element. You’ll even find a “Teacher Overview” page that you can prepare for your sub (if you have time).

Substitute Resources and Plans File---This file is designed so that you or a colleague can print these resources and give them directly to your substitute. It includes everything that your sub will need to have a successful day…

What will students be doing while I’m out of the classroom?

With the sub, students will practice their listening comprehension skills, answer targeted questions about a nonfiction passage, and creatively writing as they plan an extravagant party. It’s super engaging and centered on the theme of “extravagant celebration.” In the lesson, the substitute will teach students about listening comprehension and note taking skills before they take notes on a nonfiction listening comprehension passage. The passage is about extravagant celebrations in history. Then, students will demonstrate their listening skills by answering questions about the passage. Finally, students will complete a creative writing activity where they plan their own extravagant party. Not only is the lesson extremely educational, it’s also super fun!
