These activities are ready to copy and go, without need for the sub to read lengthy directions. Explanations for students and for the sub are incorporated as scripts which headline some but not all worksheets. The only equipment your sub needs is a copy machine; the only supplies your kids need are pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue.
This full day of activities includes: Morning and afternoon large group “messages” for students to complete and for the sub teacher to use as “get acquainted” and “end of day wrap up” meetings. Each message should take from 30 to 45 minutes of class time.
Fiction and non fiction Reader Response papers for students to write after they have read independently for 30 (or more) minutes. Students will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read a portion of a book or the whole thing. Non fiction readers will record important facts and new words learned. These reader response papers provide the opportunity for small group or large group sharing upon completion.
Activities related to time include telling time to 5 minute increments; practicing earlier and later times; practicing elapsed times.
Activities related to money include naming bills and coins to $5.00; adding coins and bills; finding different combinations of coins to equal the same amount; shopping for items to equal $5.00; assigning dollar amounts to letters in the alphabet to determine how much our names are "worth."
