One of the worst things for a teacher is to, of course, have to do sub plans. It is even worse if you are having to unexpectedly get sub plans ready, especially if you are really sick. Yuck! One thing that has helped me over the years was to have some quick go to packets. With these resources I could create a pretty generic lesson plan, or even have an emergency plan in place in case I had to unexpectedly be out. But to share all of that in a lesson plan is a bit difficult, because everyone has different classroom resources, different schedules, and different needs, so I have done my best to create a packet that would provide you with some quick and easy to use resources.
This packet provides a sample sub plan along with a blank version that is editable in the Power Point version. The set is provided in PDF form as well, but is not editable. The sub plan has an “At a Glance” page, a detailed schedule page, and a copy of my behavior plan.
*Note: The sample sub plan includes a bit of what my actual sub plan would look like
with a blend of the resources provided to kind of give you an idea of both.
The packet also includes 32 practice pages/resources for across the curriculum,
which includes: (See Preview to see exactly what is included)
- phonics, reading, comprehension, spelling, writing
- math - patterns, graphing, 3D shapes, addition, subtraction, word problems,
less/greater, and time
- Brain Break - Exercise Cootie Catcher
- science - heavy vs light
- social studies - poems for fall and transportation
- art project - spaceship art with writing
The pages are all pretty easy to use and do not take a lot of prep, or explanation for using them. The art project is probably the only project that might take a little prep, but with the detailed instructions for the project you could easily pull out the paper and leave it for the sub to prep.
