Basically, I tried to lay out all that she would know in order to function as me. I know she is a credentialed teacher, and will do things her own way, but I can *try* to have her do things as I would, right?
So the rest of this post is going to be pictures of the binder I put together. Be forewarned.....this is VERY pic heavy! :)
|The beginning of the binder just lays out the basic things my sub will need in order to navigate the curriculum, assessment, and student work. These are the BASIC things, such as what units need to be taught and how to assess the kids.|
|All schedules that the sub will need are included here in this section. Our basic daily schedule, the specials schedules, lab schedules, aide schedules....anything with the word "schedule" after it! :)|
|Here is where I describe how I do discipline in the class. Since I use a classroom economy solely, I describe that.|
|I put samples of how we fill things in (things like comprehension and our morning work) so that the substitute is ready to go with all of those "regular" things we do.|
|I also added a section of all the things we do for homework, since that is an on-going thing as well.|
Here are the docs for you. The picture dividers are NOT editable (as I am not that advanced in my skills with Power Point *just* yet.) But they are as generic as possible for you to use in making your own sub binder/long term sub binder. I actually included one cover page that says "My Sub Binder" in case you just want to make a binder for a regular sub to keep in your room.
Have you ever planned for a long term sub before? What is your best tip for those who are currently in the same situation?
OH....and if you aren't following me on instagram, here is the latest baby bump pic that you missed :)
