Creating a substitute folder each year is always difficult. I never want to use the sheets I will need later for a lesson. This is why I created this packet. It is for when I am out for a day or two and have to have a substitute in a emergency situation. This packet works well for most grade levels 2nd grade and up. It allows students to use creativity and flexibility in their thinking while the teacher is out. There are 5 different activities that include art, writing, mathematics, and creative thinking strategies.
