How I Use:
In my sub tub, I have a binder full of my proceedures and class information. It never changes, save for once a year when I update rosters, etc.
I also have a section with a generic “Suggested Schedule.” It has a whole day mapped out for the sub, where blocks of time simply say “Activity 1”. Behind the binder, I have 8 hanging file folders filled with the activities for the day. I usually have a whole other set specifically for an emergency sub as well. Each folder has the copies, any additional supplies, and an example made by me so the sub understands what I expect from the students.
If you have any questions about my sub tub system, feel free to contact me!
