Free Emergency Sub Plans

A while back I saw the idea of emergency sub plans that revolve around a book and LOVED it!  This past year the sick days I had to get subs for were due to pink eye (which my students so kindly gave me) and laryngitis, both for which I had no problem writing sub plans.  Although I hope that I will be healthy and never have to use emergency sub plans I figure I would rather be safe than sorry and someday I may be extremely thankful to myself. 

I went to Barnes and Noble and found these great book! They were $6.00 a piece, and since I couldn't decide which one I liked better, I bought both : )

Using the stories in the book I came up with activities for reading, writing, math, and science.  I also came up with a list of extra activities just in case there is time to kill.  There is more than enough for one day!  The possibilities are endless with these books, but this is what I came up with for now.  Here are the EMERGENCY SUB PLANS

I hope that these will come in handy for someone! Let me know what you think!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing! I love the Frog and Toad books and my students do, too. I love having some emergency plans ready to go when the new year starts, and these will be great :) Thanks again!

  3. Great idea. I used to do the same type if thing when I was teaching, but with some modification. If you make the questions and activities more "generic" they can be used for many different books which will save you making up new plans when these books have been used.
    In my emergency plans, I also put in a seating plan, student list, outline of the daily routine and list of general classroom rules.
    All of this was put in a brightly colored folder in an obvious place in my desk area. The subs really appreciated this folder. When I returned the next day I could just use the plans I had already made for the day I was absent and didn't have to try and figure out how much the class had gotten through on the day I was away.
