Included in this full day of activities for your sub teacher: 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 draw or write after they have read independently or with an adult for 30 (or more) minutes. With guidance, 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. They also have a place to rate the reading with 4 ?’s (4 = great...1 = yuk) These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
In writing, math and science today, students will focus on J words. In math, they will solve addition problems (through 10 or less) as they color in the Jar of Jellybeans picture.
In writing they will review 8 different J-words and do worksheets matching pictures to word, labeling pictures, matching sentences to pictures, and handwriting practice. They will cut out words to form correct sentences.
In social studies they will read about the jungle (rainforest), jaguar, and jobs (to protect the rainforest) and make their own books about these J words.
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.
