Included in this full day of activities for your sub teacher: Morning and afternoon large group “messages” for students to complete and for the sub teacher to use as “get acquainted” and “end of day wrap up” meetings. Each message should take from 30 to 45
minutes of class time.
Reader Response papers for students to write or draw after they have read independently or with an adult for 30 (or more)
minutes. With adult guidance they will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read a portion of a book or the whole thing. Non-fiction readers will record facts learned. These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
In writing, math and science, students will focus on SH words. In math, they will solve addition problems (through 10 or less) as they color in the SHip full of SHapes picture.
In writing they will review 8 different SH-words and do worksheets matching pictures to word, labeling pictures, matching
sentences to pictures, and handwriting practice. They will cut out sentence words to place in correct order on pages provided. In social studies they will read about things in the ocean: sharks, shrimp, and ships; and make their own books about these SH words.
Also included in the plans is an activities grid that briefly explains each activity, possible variations of the activity, materials needed, and Common Core Standards applied.
