Product Description
Complete 4th/5th Grade Emergency Sub Plans is a 40 page packet filled with a full day of learning activities for your students to do with your substitute, while you're sick. Everything from morning work, to reading to math and more is included to give your students an interesting day learning about animals, while making your life easier! It even has several extra time activities to make sure your sub has more than enough to keep the kids busy!

Another great thing about this unit is that everything is Common Core created to augment 4th and 5th grade curriculum, without repeating what you've already taught or will teach.

Preparation Page Instructions

I know being absent is so much more work than actually being at school. That's why I love this packet. Just copy everything and save it (or leave your sub the detailed preparation page and she/he can copy it) and you're ready to go!

I always try to create things I would use in my classroom and honestly, I wish I had a whole set of these because making sub plans when you're unexpectedly sick is no fun! This packet will put your mind at ease that your students will be engaged and learning something interesting and new, so that you can just relax and get better!

I really am excited to share this unit with you and I hope you like it as much as I do!
