The first three years I taught, I never imagined having an emergency substitute packet. This resource has saved me lots of stress and worry and has dramatically simplified the process for those days when a child is suddenly ill, or I am too sick to talk on the phone to a sub. Everything needed for a great music learning day is ready to print out and fill in the blanks with your classroom special information. This packet includes a cover letter with contact information, class rules and procedures, a class schedule, and five differentiated lesson plans that subs can choose from to fit their expertise. One plan is based on the Composer Special Movies, two plans are computer lab technology, one plan uses music vocabulary flash cards, and one plan uses the movie "Peter and the Wolf."
Although designed for music classes, this plan might be easy to adapt for the regular classroom as well, as a layout. The lesson plans are simple, easy to teach, and require no to very little special knowledge about music.
I hope this helps save you time and simplify your life,
Thanks for Looking
