Today is the day! I am not Molly. I am Rachel from Sub Hub and am guest posting on Lessons with Laughter today in celebration of the Top Teachers’ Blog Swap and Hop. At the end of this post, you will find a list of incredible blogs also participating in the swap. As you can see from the name of my blog, I am a substitute teacher. No, it was not my life’s ambition to become a substitute teacher, but it is where life has landed me for the moment, so I am embracing the profession and making it the best I possibly can. On my blog I share tips, strategies, activities, and sub plans. Today, I will be sharing with you some tips for leaving sub plans that work.
I don’t care who you are, how healthy you are, or how good your intentions are. It happens to every teacher. There comes a time when you have to miss school for one reason or another. And you have to write the *cue dramatic music here* dreaded sub plans!
My best tip to writing sub plans that work? Make them FAB! What exactly are FAB plans? They are easy to FOLLOW. They are APPROPRIATE. They include BONUS activities to fill time.
While, no sub plans are completely foolproof, if you make them FAB, you will reduce the likelihood of chaos and destruction. And, yes, I am quite melodramatic. Ha!
