Emergency Sub Plans! (Math 3rd Grade)
Have you ever been in a pickle and had to call in sick at the last minute? I have known teachers that will have to go to the school sick just to write sub plans and go back home! Do not do this to yourself! These are DONE! 10 days of Math Sub Plans, ready to print, stack, and leave! Here is how they work!
Each day of sub plans includes the following items…and there are 10 days of these sub plans!
Morning Work with Answer Key- A 20-30 minute activity (mystery number) to get the kids working, brain warming up, and allowing the sub a moment to breathe and figure things out.
Word of the Day - Two Math Vocabulary Words each day covering concepts that will be the focus of the days activities. Students will look the word up, write a definition, explain how they see this word being used in every day life, write a word problem using this vocabulary word, and finally draw a picture that goes with the word.
Math Story Problems - A writing prompt with a teacher letter attached explaining what he or she wants the students to do with these math story problems. It includes numbers to use in their story problem and the topic that needs to be used.
Math Work with Answer Key - Math problems the student will work on independently. This activity will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Fast Finisher Task Card- This task card has 6 activities for the students to do when they are finished. The students just roll a die and the number picks the activity they will complete. (I always make sure I have a student that knows where my dice are in case I do get sick and they need to help the sub find these.)
A lesson plan- this lesson plan is generic enough to fit any day, but specific enough to help the sub know exactly what to do with these activities; just place it on top of the student activities and you are ready. The only thing missing are the “times” because I know everyone’s schedule is different. Just have a schedule for him or her nearby, and then these lesson plan will tell the sub exactly what he or she needs to do, approximate time to spend on the activity, and what activity to move onto next.
These are arranged in folders:
Area and Perimeter
Estimation and Rounding
Again, there are enough for 10 Days!
DISCLAIMER: Since these are just Math plans, I have made the lesson plans for departmentalized teachers. Meaning, these lessons will be done with a morning group and an afternoon group. IF YOU ARE NOT DEPARTMENTALIZED…these are still for you! You would have to add Language Arts activities of your own, but half of your day would be COMPLETE!
I encourage you to buy these, run the copies, and place them in a “sub tub” or “sub drawer.” Then your fellow teachers can go right to it when you are sick, pull them out, and you are done! What a life saver!
I hope you enjoy, as always, let me know what you think!
