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 'Incy Wincy Spider', while the science is all about spiders.
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 ‘Incy Wincy Spider’.
Show students the cards one at a time and have them identify how many spiders on each. As an optional extension, students can use whiteboards to record how many.
Spider 10 Frames
Record a number on the back of each spider and place on the carpet or in a pocket chart. Invite students to flip over a spider one at a time, read the number shown and then build it in the 10 frames provided.
Spider Roll and Cover
Students work independently or in pairs to roll a die and then cover the matching number until all the raindrops are covered.
Spider 10 Frame Match Up

All About Spiders
