Make sure what you leave is something your students can handle doing on their own. I also highly recommend taking a grade on it and making sure they know this before hand.

Be very detailed. When I was a sub I preferred more details over basic plans

likefunny

Leave more rather than less! Your guest teacher may not elaborate on a subject like you would so students may complete work more quickly. Free time=possible chaos!!! Prioritize the work you leave so if it doesn’t get done, it’s not that terrible. Be very detailed, and show other teachers where to find your materials if it was an unexpected absence so the first teacher can ask them for help if he/she cannot locate your materials. I always email my plans to a hallmate so they can be taped to my door. Lastly; if kids are middle school or older, have them keep work in their folder or notebook. Too many kids claim they handed the work in but the guest teacher “lost” it!! Have fun!!

As a sub (& I've done a lot of subbing for middle grades), I really appreciate detailed and easy to follow plans. I personally, am a certified teacher that wasn't able to get a job, so I do find that I can handle more than the average person in regards to explaining things, answering questions, and classroom management - but most subs aren't familiar with these things. Share every little thing about a typical day. If you have a fail-proof way of getting students back on track, share that with the sub. It's a lifesaver. Also - leave the names of trusted students that can answer questions about something you may have forgotten to put on the plans, like where do I find x,y,z or what time do we go outside, etc.

I always feel like I leave the best plans ever! And then subs either mess it ALL the way up, or back out at the last minute...😕 I would try not to stress too much about it, and plan on re-teaching all the material when you get back anyway 😂😂😂

Simple I know you might not have any lessons already done because you're a first year teacher but Google emergency lesson plans and watch what pops up for your particular subject.... Once you scour the Internet looking for different projects you can compile 10 of them together in a onenote File in have those schedule to be delivered to your students when you are out.... The advantage of onenote Is that once you find something already created all you have to do is copy it and attach it to onenote and the students can write directly on the documents that you found on the Internet. Just make sure that it is relevant and something that the students know you will be checking when you get back to class you never wanna give busy work for a emergency lesson plan.

Leave detailed plans, explain your classroom management, and don’t be afraid to ask the sub to respect your expectations. Ask them to hold the students accountable for the work they complete in your absence.

Be very specific. Subs appreciate specifics and detains.

Have a student sign in sheet also. Have them log their time of arrival if tardy. This protects them in case the sub makes a mistake in attendance, tardy or passes out or called by admin. That’s what I tell my classes. Designate a few students you trust to be sub helpers/ reference for your procedures. Make a note of students for the sub to not engage with, if you have those in your class. My note is simply that if they need to leave the class to let them and make note of the time they left. I always make a private comment to those students on their assignment in Google Classroom with my specific expectations for them. I also let them know I expect them to leave class respectfully and quietly and the exact location to go. have Always ask the next day what conditions they encountered with sub and with assignment and tech, if assignment is on computer.

Yes!! I've experienced this firsthand although the not an extreme explosion, just a minor meltdown. I so wished the teacher would've let me know the circumstances with that student at least in a minimal way so that I could've avoided it

There are sub plan binders that you can purchase from TPT for not much money. They are grade specific and editable so you can have everything ready.

Take the best parts of sub plans you got (if you ever subbed) and follow that blueprint. I left detailed plans that also included emergency procedures if necessary. Don’t forget to mention any students to be aware of. Also, check with your hall mate if they can be just a check in person for the sun if necessary. I always did this for my subs and have returned the favor when my neighbors had subs. It lets the kids know that someone they see regularly is still there
