What educators are saying

Left for a sub this past week - went super well! They varied worksheets were great to cover multiple grade levels! Thanks
I left this for a substitute when I was out. I feel so much better when I know my students are learning even when I'm not there.


Most teachers would agree taking a sick or person day is harder than actually being at work. Writing sub plans and preparing sub tubs and sub binders are so hard, especially in music and other specials!

This is a great sub plan for the non-musical sub! No musical skills required!

This is a great print and go plan for K-2. Students will read a book about a little boy who performs on instruments and then destroys them till he realizes he wants be a conductor. Students will listen to a recording of the book and then complete a fun worksheet to go along with it.

This goes perfectly with the FREE and EDITABLE Sub Plan Template!

Included in this File

  • EDITABLE lesson plans to put in your sub tub or sub binder.
  • A worksheet for you to copy and put in your sub tub or sub binder.
  • Posters for you to print and laminate to put in your sub tub or sub binder. This is so your sub has something to reference when reviewing instruments with students. Posters in black & white and color.

NOTE: This does NOT include the book, The Remarkable Farkle McBride (Affiliate Link) and is required for this lesson. It also does not include the Farkle and Friends CD (Affiliate Link) which is not required, but offers a great addition. I have offered a YouTube link for your convenience.

Be sure download the preview for a look at all the pages included in this resource!
