Tired of worrying about writing sub plans when an emergency arises? Save yourself the time and energy with this full year bundle of Common Core and TEKS-aligned sub plans for 3rd & 4th grade!

Having a sub can often be more work than actually coming in…even when you’re sick! The goal of this sub plan pack is to alleviate some of the stress of missing a day of work. When I missed a day, I often found myself up at school (or in bed with my laptop) typing my sub plans for hours, even when I felt completely miserable. In an emergency situation, my teammates were left to pick up the pieces and put together something that resembled a school day in my classroom. That’s where the inspiration for this product came from. Just open the file, grab one picture book (or grab the YouTube link to the story online), print, and go!

These ready-made sub plan sets are designed to be a perfect fit for your third or fourth grade classroom and are specially designed to correspond with monthly themes or holidays. It offers an all-in-one solution to substitute planning. Just copy and paste the lesson plans into your own lesson plan template that fits the schedule of your school day, and you are ready to go. Many teachers will find there is enough content to cover more than just a single day of sub plans in each set, depending on your class and students. Plus, there are activities designed to address early finishers and challenge those students who need a little extra push.

While no one like the idea of catching that dreaded bug that seems to go around each year, this set alleviates the worry that comes along with sub plans. Originally sold individually, this bundle was created by special request so that there was no more figuring out what to have the sub do with your students at any point in the school year. It also includes two sets of bonus plans for those unexpected months when you just can't seem to stay healthy!

Your students will love the fun activities and will be learning and practicing applicable skills and strategies even when you are gone. The included answer keys allow your substitute to feel confident in helping your students when they get stuck on a question and even give them the chance to check over work before it gets turned in.

If you’ve ever stressed about sub plans, I hope you’ll try this easy solution to help take one more thing off your already full plate. Teachers work hard enough already. When you are sick, work should be the last thing on your mind!
