WHAT HAVE PEOPLE SAID ABOUT OUR SUB PLANS PREVIOUSLY?

"Used these plans yesterday and had great feedback from the sub in my room. They were very grateful for the detailed instructions and the kids were highly engaged all day! Thank you so much!!"

"I have purchased several sets of emergency sub plans, and they just never fit my needs. These, however, are just what I've been looking for! Easy prep, easy for the sub to follow! I recommend this to anyone needing emergency plans."

"I love this resource!! It was so easy to get ready for a sub because I would just open up my Math Sub binder and choose a few activities for the day!! Thanks so much!!"

"Y’all… this is LIFE CHANGING!! I can’t tell you the time and money I’ve spent looking for resources to leave for my students when I’m out. As a first year teacher, the struggle is real with the PD’s and testing requiring me to be absent. There’s SO much to use here! I purchased this just yesterday for a planned absence I had today and was able to create a packet of relevant resources for my sub to assign. Took no time at all and it’s super easy to navigate. I can’t wait to print it all and get my tub ready. The organizer tabs are also an extra convenient bonus. No more will I have to worry about the stress of sub planning. This will literally last me a lifetime. Thank you Wife Teacher Mommy!! "
