Making lesson plans can take quite a bit of time, but making them at the last minute for a substitute teacher is enough to stress you out! I will be in my own classroom teaching within the next two years, and I am already worrying about lesson plans, nonetheless what I'm going to do when I need a substitute to come in. This blog posting has given me a bit of relief. There is a ton of good points made about all of the necessary things you will need when planning for a substitute. This blog suggests that having a sub binder is essential! The binder should include a class list, seating chart, responsibilities, a daily schedule, important numbers, and so much more. There are things that I never would have thought about leaving for a substitute, but make so much sense now! There is also a list of quick "print and go" activities to do for an English Language Art classroom. You can even purchase aSub Plan Bundle, which is quick and easy lesson plans for when you don't have time to plan. This blog post is a MUST READ for all teachers! There are so many helpful tips for new and experienced teachers.
