What is included in these 6th Grade Language Arts Sub Plans?

Each lesson in the 6th grade sub plans ELA is simple enough for the sub to follow, but will engage your students in authentic learning …and not just busy work. Each lesson plan has a section for teacher notes at the bottom for any notes you’d like to leave for the sub (or for the sub to leave you notes!) All the graphic organizers, activities, or worksheets needed to complete every lesson are included.

  • Language Arts topics include: pronouns, reflexive and intensive pronouns, personification, restrictive and non-restrictive elements such as commas, parentheses, and dashes, and context clues
  • Silent Reading Comprehension Strategy Lesson topics: text questioning, making connections, visualizing, summarizing, and the main idea
  • Reading Passages Lessons: Three differentiated reading passages are included. The topics of the reading passages include a sick teacher, soccer, movie popcorn, reading, and the middle ages
  • Writing topics include: argument writing, narrative writing, informative writing, acrostic poetry, and friendly letter writing

In addition to the 6th grade ELA lesson plans, the following student activities are also included:

  • 2 Interactive Notebooks covering a topic from one of the lesson plans
  • A puzzle to go with each lesson
  • “Just Add A Task” Board Game:  This board game is nearly ready to go! All that’s left to do is add a task- such as a spelling or vocab list or math flash cards. It can also be played just for fun without a task. Color and B&W versions are included.
