This sheet is great to use for sub plans. It is very convenient on sick days to quickly put this activity into sub plans when you aren't feeling great!
I have also included the following sub instructions too if you just want to leave the page of directions for the sub.
Read the story Miss Nelson is missing to the students. Read with expression and ask the students questions about the story as you read. Make connections to the fact that today the normal teacher of their class is missing too!
Pass out the writing prompt sheets. Read the directions with the students and ask them if they have any questions before they begin.
(Directions on prompt sheet) Write a story about where you think your teacher went and what your teacher is doing today. Remember all stories must have a beginning, middle, and end. Have fun and be creative! Use the box below to plan before you write!
Circulate and assist as students are writing. Point out the strengths in their writing!
When students finish writing instruct them to reread their work and make any necessary revisions or edits.
Collect papers as students finish.
Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions.
