I added a new full day subplan this week dedicated to my grandson, Gunnar, who loves bugs and knows a lot more about them than I do! Included in the file are morning and afternoon messages; pages for counting, adding, and subtracting bugs; reading comprehension passages about the spider and ladybug; words to cut out and paste inside the "magic sentence maker" cloud; and an ABC Book of Bugs to draw, color, and assemble. The full day of activities includes scripts for the sub, ideas for variations, supplies needed, and forms for you to write notes to the sub and for her/him to write back to you.
Even though these subplans are designed for your substitute teacher when you can't be there, you might just find these activities to be useful in your own teaching practice.
