Does anyone else feel like being away sick is more work than being at school? I know I need to take the time to rest and heal, but planning for a substitute is just so much work. There are so many good grab-and-go sub plans out there, but sometimes I just want things to continue my way, and I know that's not always possible.
In this season of colds and flus, it never hurts to be over-prepared with sub plans! I try to have a binder of writing assignments, math projects, and classroom routines all prepped and ready to go just in case I can't be in the next day.
If you want to win $200 worth of ready-to-go units for elementary students, or a shopping spree at 10 Teachers Pay Teachers stores (plus a $15 site-wide gift card), head on over to the previous post, where I am giving both of those away for FREE!.
Am I alone in this anxiety over leaving my class with a sub? How do you plan for your inevitable days off? Let me know in the comments below!
