This full day of activities is ready to copy and go without need for your sub to read lengthy directions. Included in the download is the Zombies ABC Book which is also sold separately in my store.
Morning and afternoon large group “messages” for students to complete and for the sub teacher to use as “get acquainted” and “end of day wrap up” meetings. Each message should take from 30 to 45 minutes of class time.
Reader Response papers for students to write after they have read independently or with an adult for 30 (or more) minutes. For K-1st grade level students, it is suggested that students do the reader response forms in a small group with the substitute teacher. Students will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read a portion of a book or the whole thing. These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
In literacy block and math, students will focus on Halloween Fun.
In math they will make a “Halloween Stuff” counting (1-10) book; add Halloween things (1-5) and subtract Halloween witches (from 8).
In literacy block they will read text and respond to comprehension questions about Halloween Night; they will cut out and match Halloween words; they will make a Zombies ABC Book; they will practice writing sentences.
Also included in the plans is an activities grid that briefly explains each activity, possible variations of the activity, materials needed, and Common Core Standards Applied
