This is a great product for you to have when you are not able to be in your classroom and need a substitute! As a substitute, I know that when I walk into a classroom, I want to be able to EASILY find the information I need! Nothing is worse than walking into a classroom and being left there with NO information. Because of this, I have designed a substitute packet so that whenever you need a sub, they can easily find all of the information they need and hopefully have a smooth day with your kids.
Here's what I plan on doing with this in my own classroom, although I'm sure your classroom may be different. I would laminate this packet and put it into a folder (the one with three fasteners/brads in the middle) so they can easily flip through the information and take it with them when needed. I would place this folder on top of my sub tub, which would have all of materials for the day inside of it, separated by subject.
In this packet, you will find:
-Sub Tub heading
-Table of Contents
-Class list (for the sub to mark those who are tardy, behavior problems, or keep track of when students leave the room)
-Important Info (team teachers, phone extensions, extra duties, computer information)
-Daily Class Schedule
-Other schedules (specials, RtI, medication, etc.).
-Student Info (Behavior management, accommodations, reliable students)
-What If..? (lunch money, field trip money, transportation change, library returns/checkouts, recess)
-Emergency Procedures (fire, earthquake, tornado, room clear, lock down)
-Class procedures (HW, attendance, bathroom, dismissal)
-Extras (note to sub, attention grabbers)
**ALL of this is made up information, but I have included it so that you can see how I would set it up. It is meant for you to EDIT the information so that it fits your own classroom. It's in a .docx format.**
