As an early years teacher, one of the hardest things can be getting sick. The last thing you want to do is type out a daily plan and search for resources for your sub when you feel ill, and yet this is often exactly what happens!
If this sounds like you (it is me to a tea!), then this packet is for you! I have compiled a collection of 13 resources covering math, literacy and science perfect for this event. Just print, laminate a few bits and pieces and place in a folder! I have included a complete list with instructions for each resource to make life even easier for you. All the math and literacy resources included follow the theme of 'Hey Diddle, Diddle', while the science is about day and night.
Included in this set of sub plans are:
I have included a colour poster to display as well as a black and white worksheet for children to colour in. The black and white worksheet is included in both A4 and A5 size.
These cards can be sequenced in a pocket chart and used for choral reading with students.
Students cut and paste the pictures in the correct order to match the rhyme.
Students can trace, copy and build the sentence from the rhyme.
Students help to match the rhyming words from the rhyme with others.
Nursery Rhyme Reader
Students can read and colour in their own book for ‘Hey Diddle, Diddle’.
Over the Moon Ten Frame Flash
Show students the cards one at a time and have them identify how many moons on each ten frame. As an optional extension, students can use whiteboards to record how many.
Tally Up the Pups!
Record a number from 3 to 10 on the back of each dog. Invite students to choose a dog, flip it over and read the number shown. The students can then colour or circle the correct tally marks on their page.
Build it Up!
Students work independently or in pairs to build towers to match the number shown on each star.
Tallies Over the Moon
Students cut and paste the numbers to match the tally marks shown.
Night and Day Chart
Discuss with students how we see and do different things during the day and at night. Use the header cards to create a chart, brainstorming all the things we see and do in each.
Night or Day
Students can cut and paste the pictures and sort them by day or night.
Night and Day
Students can draw a picture of something they might do during the day and at night in each box. As an optional extension, encourage students to label their pictures.
Alternately, have students draw a picture of a day sky and a night sky, and label all the features in each.
