    Sick Day Lesson Plans
    By Jane

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I've done this for 28 years, and it has worked wonderfully. In my spare time (HA!), I create a substitute folder for each day of the week (this way some of the work can be planned in sequential order if I'm out 2 or more days in a row). I plan review work. Whether it be in the form of worksheets (sometimes if I don't have time to run the copies myself, I leave a master copy of the worksheet with a note attached, "Need to run-off "X" # of copies) or in their books, I put things in that are definitely on our CRCT test in the spring. A little review never hurts. The sub is not responsible for introducing anything new, just guiding the review. I place the folder with my teacher editions near my desk marked in large print "SUBSTITUTE TEACHER'S LESSON PLANS" and day of the week marked on each folder. Then, when I get back I create another folder for whatever day I was absent.
