In the past, I've gotten compliments from substitute teachers on my sub plans and information. What a great feeling of relief! It is so hard to leave my kiddos behind. I feel like the more informed your sub is, the more likely they will finished the lesson plans you share with them.
Here's What's Inside:
- Students with notes about each one (behavior, if they're a helper, if they will need academic support, etc.)
- Lesson plans for the day
- General lesson plans for emergencies
- Attendance form to be turned into the office
- Worksheets that go with our themes and objectives (*sigh* I know, I don't like worksheets either!)
- A place for a substitute to leave notes on how my second graders behaved
- Extension activities for fast finishers
- Sponge activities if things get finished early
- Attention signal
- Information on individual and classroom rewards
Whew! I think I listed it all! This is organized, of course! I forgot how long it took to plan for someone else to teach your kiddos! Luckily, I know my sub and know she'll do an amazing job!
When I dropped off today's sub plans, I found this sweet little note from a very smart kiddo:
Definitely made me feel better! I'm hoping the body protectors come soon to defeat this flu bug!
How do you prepare for a substitute teacher??
