We've all had those mornings. You wake up feeling like death has tapped you on the shoulder. Sniffing, headache, every muscle hurts. What's that? You don't have lesson plans? Then pull yourself out of bed, sister! You've got to get to school to make those plans. Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll live long enough to make it home again.
Make your life soooo much easier by having a day's worth of plans already done for those "Oh good grief" mornings. So, what do you need?
1. Your general sub folder with procedures, students to depend on, and the specials schedule
2. Two or three math activities that are more projects than worksheets (that uses up a nice chuck of time for the sub).
3. Two to three worksheets/activities that can be used with a book. Be sure to pick a short book the sub can read to the class. Depending on your class and the time of year, group projects work great for this!
4. Look on Google to find a great project for gifted kids. Many of them take a lot of time (thinking of the sub here) and all kids enjoy them.
5. Leave a list of time fillers, in case they are needed….they will be!
To make it a little easier, I've included one fun activity to use with any book you wish to add with your plans. Click on the link below the picture!
