How do you plan for a substitute teacher?
The dreaded day has finally come! Tuesday I will be in training all day and will have a substitute teacher. I hate being out of the classroom not just because I miss my students but also because I hate making sub plans! I know what it's like to be a substitute teacher in a classroom with poor sub plans. It is for this reason that my plans take me hours to prepare. I try to keep the day as normal as possible. I purchased Amanda Nickerson's Sub Tub. This has been a life saver for getting things ready!
Do you do any special preparations for having a substitute teacher in your classroom? How do you encourage your students to behave for the sub?
