Product Description
Finally!!! Stress-free, speedy fast, super detailed sub planning made SIMPLE! An AWESOME gift for your sub, your students and of course- YOU!


This packet is designed to give you 2 DAYS worth of great learning activities that you can easily leave for a sub. It includes 13 unique, appealing, clearly explained activities that span across many subjects/skills: math, reading, writing, listening, art, teamwork, class books, and even a reward just for fun! There’s just so much to choose from here that once you add this to your usual routine (morning meeting, specials, recess, lunch, etc.), you’ll certainly have enough to last your sub 2 easy days... or if you’re only gone 1 day, you could use the extra stuff yourself when you return to make your 1st day back a little less crazy. (ee? Designed by a real classroom teacher who KNOWS how it goes!) :) Woo-hooo!

I’m even including an organized feedback sheet for your sub to fill out and a handy checklist so the sub can easily let you know what they had time for and didn’t do yet. No shuffling through things, trying to guess about what happened or what didn't. Being sick is hard enough-- don’t stress about being gone, don’t stress about coming back. :)

So here’s the plan: Can’t make it to school? Just email this file to a teacher friend who can print a copy for you and hand it to your sub. Or if you’re planning ahead (which I totally recommend if you have time- if not this year, do it for next year and save yourself some stress!), pop this baby in your “emergency sub folder” and it’ll be there when you need it. You or the sub will need to make a few photocopies (black and white is fine), but that’s all. No other materials (besides a book and basics like scissors, crayons, dice) are required. It’s really simple and super fun!

All the activities in this packet center around the CLASSIC, much-loved book series by Stan and Jan Berenstain. You probably already have some of their books in your classroom library or your sub could easily get a stack of them from your school library or from another teacher. You only need one book, but kids will love the characters and lessons learned and enjoy hearing more than one book as well. Even if kids have already heard these stories, they're favorites they’ll love to hear again and again. So just sit back & relax… Super Speedy Sub Plans has everything under control.

Math: Combining 2 numbers: Connect Four Dice Game

Art/Class Book: Family Portraits (with or without writing on the page)
Word Work: Word Search
Word Work: Word Detective
Word Work: Roll A Word (to practice writing family words like love, brother, sister, mom, dad)
Reward/Fun: a super simple, effective plan to motivate kids to earn the chance to watch a Berenstain Bear video online (and instructions on how to find a TON of videos as long as you have access to a projector/computer)

Take care! Hope you can make it back to school soon!
