If you’re like me then you want to be prepared in case of an emergency absence. You get sick. Your child gets sick. A family emergency comes up. It happens to all of us! But when you are absent , you want to make sure your students are engaged in meaningful activities.
This 100 plus page packet is just the thing to keep your students busy, engaged AND working on common core skills while you are out. Each activity was hand-selected to match the 6th grade common core standards for English Language Arts. Common Core standards are listed for each day and a simple lesson plan (indicating the pages needed for that day) is listed for each day.
You will get a chart for your daily schedule, a chart for medical needs, a “Note from the Sub” sheet
5 spelling activities (you do not need a spelling list for these)
5 vocabulary activities
5 grammar activities
5 reading activities ( you do not need a novel or basal for these)
10 writing activities
Your students will need only basic supplies; paper, pencils, scissors, glue and possibly construction paper or file folders if you choose to have them do the activities in a lap book.
This packet will work for a substitute for an entire week. EACH day is jam-packed with meaningful activities which should last anywhere from 90 minutes to 120 minutes. EACH day will have some type of interactive activity such as a foldable or flap book. Some days may have more than one interactive activity. Your students will LOVE the activities and you will have peace of mind knowing that they are working on important skills and not just “busy work” while you are out. Enjoy and have a stress-free absence! You might be out, but common core standards will still be practiced in your classroom!
This product can be used for 7th or 8th grade ELA as well, but the standards are taken from the 6th grade curriculum.
