S.O.S.— Save Our Substitutes (Michigan Ed Association) It may not be in your lesson plans right now, but sometime in the future you're probably going to miss a day of school and you'll need a substitute. Subs are like Santa's elves-they do the work when the big guy isn't around. Subs will do a better job if you make sure everything they need is marked and handy.
Substitute Teacher Resources (Teacher Vision) Prepare your class for your absence with these substitute teacher printables and references. There are classroom management resources to provide substitutes with emergency contact information, directions, and a daily schedule. The Teacher Vision lesson planning kits provide icebreakers for substitutes and educational activities for elementary and intermediate students. Feedback forms will help you gather important information about a substitute's experience in your classroom.
