Imagine never having to create kindergarten sub plans again! This resource has everything you need for high-quality emergency sub plans which you can use anytime you have an unexpected absence. Prep them once and you never have to worry about spending hours prepping for a sub when your priority needs to be caring for yourself or your family.

You’ll get 150+ pages of rigorous, engaging, and easy to understand activities, one for each of these subjects for 10 full days:

-Reading sub plans

-Writing sub plans

-Math sub plans

-Science sub plans

-Social studies sub plans

There's no additional prep work or materials needed: simply print class sets of the activities and tweak the schedule for the sub to fit your schedule, and you’re done.

*No more “busywork” in the form of low-level worksheets: activities are rigorous, inspire divergent thinking, and are aligned to standards so kids don’t miss a day of learning

*No more creating separate lessons plans for students’ various ability levels: most activities are open-ended and therefore naturally differentiated

*No more racing around at the last minute gathering materials: all you need is a class set of photocopies for each day’s activities

*No more hoping your students will actually do the work when you’re out: these resources are classroom tested to ensure developmental appropriateness and engagement

*No more creating gigantic sub binders with every piece of reference info possible: forms are streamlined to include only the most important info so you can fill it out quickly and the sub doesn’t have to wade through stacks of info

Each day's activities are organized into NON-SEASONAL THEMES so you can use them at ANY time, including if you're absent for multiple days in a row:


Growth Mindset






Character Traits

Healthy Foods



BONUS! Your purchase also includes:

* Tips for simplifying sub preparation and making your absences run smoother (in PDF and audio form)

* Step-by-step instructions for creating a full year’s “emergency sub tub” if you’d like to do all your sub prep at once

* Editable forms with important class information for the sub to reference

* Editable sub plan template with the activities already filled in (simply tweak for your daily schedule and expectations)

* Editable slideshow for the substitute to display to the class with a personalized message from you and outline of the day’s schedule to keep everyone on track

* Editable sub report for the substitute to let you know how the day’s lessons went

Note: These are NOT supposed to be easy review activities or busywork like most sub plans! They are designed to provide rigorous and challenging work for kids even though you are not there. If all your students already know how to read and do all the activities you leave for them, they will be bored, act out, and not complete the work. These will be meaningful and engaging challenges, and your students might just surprise you with how much they’re able to do!

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is some overlap with K-2 skills, so you will have duplicate and highly similar activities if you purchase multiple sub plans within that grade range.


I recommend buying only ONE set of sub plans--click the "preview" button at the top of the page to see an entire day's worth of lessons. If they look too hard, keep in mind that the substitute will be leading these activities and reading the text/directions to students. If the activities look too easy, choose the 1st grade bundle instead. The grade level is approximate/subjective and not referenced anywhere in the student materials, so pick whatever resource best fits your students' needs.)
