Planning for a Substitute can be very time consuming and frustrating and to need to do the process multiple times a year is exhausting, especially if you are sick or have a sick kid at home. Using these templates means you just do it one time, you print them out and leave them in your Emergency Sub Kit.

I created these Templates because I was tired of writing the same information down each time I needed a substitute. I needed something that I could just put in the new lessons for the day and that was it. Each time I have a substitute, they say they love how clear and concise these direction are and everything they need is right there.

These templates are in full color and organized in a way for a substitute to find what they need. I have included examples of my own to give you ideas on how to write them up.

They are completely EDITABLE and customizable, which makes it nice for when you need to make changes.

What's Included

  • Welcome to my Classroom Page: This is where you give an overview, tell about students who are helpful or who need extra eyes
  • Weekly Schedule Page: List out your daily schedules
  • End of the Day Routines: Give your substitute your tips to make the end of the day smooth and each school does dismissal differently.
  • RTI and IEP pages: A way to list those students who leave during the day to go to other classes.
  • How Do I Go Home: List the ways students go home.
  • Sheets where you can decide what goes on them

How this Benefits You?

You can relax a little more on those sick days and in preparation knowing that your substitute has all the information they need to take care of your class.

You might also be interested in my Substitute Teaching Plans. These are ELA plans that provides a ton of activities that are differentiated, all the sub needs is a book.

Don’t forget that leaving feedback earns you points toward FREE TPT purchases. I love FEEDBACK!
