This literacy & math packet is filled with a lot of quick, easy & fun activities so you can use parts of it to teach a variety of standards, and still have plenty left over for a sub folder, binder or sub tub!


  • "This is a HUGE resource for Miss Nelson! Not only for subs, but fantastic activities to go with the book for days and days and days."
  • "Great packet for a sub. Plenty to do, plus some. Also appreciate that it covers many of my standards."

If you don’t have pre-done SUB PLANS, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to take the time to make them now.

You will be thanking yourself a zillion times later, when an emergency arises or you or your own children are sick. This EASY PREP is a huge time saver.


  • “Awesome.” “So easy to leave for a sub." "Very comprehensive unit!
  • “Great resource.” “This packet made planning for my absence very easy. So much to work with!"
  • “Life Saver!”

Whether you’re “eaten by sharks” or “carried off by aliens”, you’ll have the peace of mind that “Viola Swamp” or whoever else subs for you, has a super-fun & easy-to-follow lesson plan.


  • “The students loved it!!!”
  • "Amazing resource filled with TONS of fun activities!"
  • "The students were highly engaged in the activities."

With that in mind, I designed the Miss Nelson is Missing literacy & math packet.

It’s loaded with a nice variety of reading, writing & math activities that your students will really enjoy doing.

There are also some classroom management goodies & a few little extras for making a sub tub, binder or folder. Everything’s centered around the story, but also works independently as well.

Simply pick & choose what’s appropriate for your kiddos.

Run things off, organizing them however best suits your schedule, then fill out your lesson plan for what you’ve done; include the book & you’re good to go!

Woo hoo! No more worries, no stress, no trying to think when your brain is elsewhere, or your body is ill. I did the work, so you don’t have to!

Using the materials I’ve provided & perhaps adding a few of your own ideas, you’ll have a sub tub, binder or folder that you can reuse every year!
