PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you ever woken up sick and didn't have sub plans ready to go?

Confession: I have, but I'm ready this year! :)

This packet includes 5 full days of emergency sub plans for the K-1 teacher. {The days don't have to be consecutive.} The lessons are detailed and provide instruction and activities for reading, writing, word work/phonics, math, and science & social studies. I've also included a "Smart Art" activity for each of the 5 days as an additional (but optional) filler. All the activities and lessons are developmentally appropriate for K-1 and are open-ended to allow for children of multiple ability levels to participate successfully.

As much as possible, the lesson plans reflect expectations aligned with the Common Core State Standards and focus on skills and strategies such as:

Reading (Fiction and Nonfiction)
character analysis, story sequence, predictions, prior knowledge, connections, providing evidence, recalling facts, and questioning

Word Work / Phonics
beginning sounds, ending sounds, medial vowel sounds, syllables, and early sight words

Math
number recognition and match to 20, sums to 12, collaborative problem solving, number sequence... most in game form

Science / Social Studies
push/pull, needs/wants, living/nonliving, a beginning biography, and more...

• There is also a daily writing activity and an optional daily "Smart Art" activity which includes a super simple art project connected to a related poem or song. There is plenty to keep the sub and the children engaged at a time when you need it most.

To prepare your emergency sub plans, you'll need to gather a few common items, many of which are probably already available among your classroom materials or your school's general supply closet. If not, the good news is most "Dollar Stores" carry these items, so it's super cheap to outfit your emergency sub bin. As a matter of fact, a nice parent volunteer may offer to get these things for you AND assemble your bin... just ask! :)

Things will you need to buy, get, or borrow include:

• mini marshmallows {1 bag}
• 5-6 decks of playing cards
• 20-24 dice
• bingo chips or counters
• old magazines
• white and black construction paper
• plain white copy paper
• general student supplies like, scissors, glue sticks, crayons, and markers

Happy teaching! :)
