Sub Plans

As a substitute it is always important to come prepared! I have learned that things do not always go as planned and I need to be ready to come up with something to fill time or replace a lesson at the last minute. I put together my subbing binder, that has a variety of activities that I can easily use to keep children busy and engaged. I have highlighted some below:

I know teachers have books in their classes, however, bringing my own allowed me to read a story that was more likely new to the students as well as ensuring that I didn’t have to worry about whether the teacher was saving the book for a future lesson.








I also carried with me Gym Games, Colouring Sheets, Dot to Dots, and other activities for students to complete if I needed just a short time filler.
