This packet is designed to help you explain the way your classroom functions to a sub and give them the hands-on information they need to have a successful day in your classroom.

Help your sub go from just surviving to thriving!

2. Substitute Feedback - printable black and white page to get a quick overview of how the day went.

3. Quick Prep Directions - printable black and white page to help subs know how to prepare a set of materials (copy, laminate, staple, etc.) if needed. Sometimes this is a must if you're gone for multiple days!

5. "Leslie's Hand" Font (.ttf) - a font that I created and used in the packet. Install to use an easy-to read font for your substitute packet. (optional)
