Have you ever had one of those days when you wake up super sick and just don’t feel like dealing with the stress of getting ready for a sub, so you just go into work sick and miserable? Or maybe you have had a family emergency and instead of being able to focus on your loved one who needs you, you spend time typing up sub plans. Well this resource was created for days like these. Included is everything your sub will need to keep those students learning and happy all day long. Simply print out the plans, attach a copy of your daily schedule, make class sets of each activity and store in a “Sub Tub” in your room. You will be all set!
This packet is also a perfect resource for substitutes who need emergency plans or it can be used simply as a fun, polar bear-themed day. If you like this packet, consider purchasing my Sub Tub: All About Owls or Sub Tub: All About Rabbits.
***In my classroom I keep all 3 packets prepped and ready to go so that I have something always ready for each season.
This packet contains a student reader about the focus animal; daily plans; printables to support reading, writing, math and science learning throughout the day; read-aloud ideas plus links to on-line read-aloud resources; an art activity with a link to an on-line instructions; a cooperative learning opportunity and links to brainbreak resources.
