What is included in these Digital 4th Grade Language Arts Sub Plans?

Each lesson in these digital 4th grade ELA sub plans 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. The following topics are included:

  • Language Arts topics include: homophones, prepositional phrases, idioms, fixing sentences, and homophones review
  • Silent Reading Comprehension Strategy Lesson topics: text questioning, making connections, visualizing, summarizing, and the main idea
  • Differentiated Reading Passages: Three differentiated reading passages are included. Choose the best one or use all three and differentiate. The topic of the reading passages includes a sick teacher, soccer, movie popcorn, reading, and middle ages
  • Writing topics include: opinion writing, narrative writing, informative writing, acrostic poetry, and friendly letter writing

In addition to the 4th grade ELA lessons, the following DIGITAL student activities are also included so you won’t have to worry about the sub running out of things to do.

  • Brain Breaks that can be used to help break up the day 
  • Art Activity to help get creative juices flowing and fill time as-needed
  • Digital Notebook Template covering a topic from one of the lesson plans
  • Digital BINGO Game with movable pieces! The BINGO includes content from the other lessons during the day
  • Digital Educational Game with movable pieces! The educational game covers content from the other lessons from the day
  • Just Add a Task Digital Board Game with movable pieces! 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 included.

Rest assured the day will run smoothly because we’ve got these extras to make 4th grade ELA sub-planning EASY FOR YOU!
