"By far, the best set of sub plans I have ever used! More than enough work! My students enjoyed it. The sub enjoyed it! Perfect!"

"I LOVE these sub plans. The plans are very complete and easy to use. My students enjoyed taking a break form their usual activities to work on these while I was away."

"These are really amazing! I have them all printed out and in folders, ready for a sub in case of an emergency! I made sure to buy all of the books that are part of the lessons and leave them in the folder with the worksheets. That way, the sub never has to go looking for ANYTHING!"
