This wonderful book that is adored by children and adults alike, is the perfect starting point for having a discussion about behavior when the class has a substitute teacher. Why not take that discussion and use it as a writing activity? That's exactly what this resource is for.
After reading "Miss Nelson Is Missing" the students are asked to draw a picture of what they think their substitute teacher will look like. This activates their creative side, as well as throwing a little bit of humor in as well. Next they will need to do some reflection and decide what behaviors will be easy for them while you're away and what behaviors will be tricky. Lastly, the students should deduct why it is important to follow classroom rules even when their teacher is away.
This writing activity could be added to a portfolio, hung inside/outside the classroom on display, bound together with everyone's answers as a classroom book, or even compiled and given to the substitute as a fun gift.

I am always happy to create follow up writing activities for certain books, so feel free to reach out and make a request!

Also, if you purchase this resource will you pretty please leave feedback so others can know what to expect or how the lesson went for you?!
