I have been using the concept of a SUB-TUB for six years now and let me tell you, it is a SAVIOR when you or your family gets hit unexpectedly with some sort of sickness!! The LAST thing you want to happen is for the sub to not have anything to do, your kids run a muck, not be engaged, or even worse, your team is responsible for scrambling to find something for your kids to do!

To prep the sub tub, I make copies of all that I would like for my students to do. There is a cover sheet for each activity for the substitute explain what needs to be done and your expectations for the students. **I have included the PowerPoint versions of each of the cover pages for you to edit as needed specifically for your class and needs.**
Next, I place each activity in a separate hanging file folder in the order for them to be completed. I place all the important items like the class roster, how students go home, emergency drills, helpful students, office staff, schedule, etc inside a folder that is placed in the very first hanging file. Once it’s all complete I place it in a location that is easy to find and that my team members will be able to easily access in case of emergency! **Don’t forget to show your team the location too!** Now you’re all ready for that emergency or sickness that strikes in the night without the hassle of hurrying to school to make sub plans!! You’re all set!
