Use this fully editable emergency sub binder to help yourself prepare for your next unexpected absence.
This editable substitute binder will help you prepare for that day when you just can’t make it in to pull together your plans. How nice it will be to have everything ready!
At the bottom of this post you will also find links to our free sub plans for each grade, kindergarten through fifth. The sets of plans are also free.
We’ve included three different cover pages for you to choose from. We like the idea of creating a binder so items can easily be added and moved around. Add this to the cover so a colleague can grab it off your shelf when needed.
We have created a checklist with a few ideas of what to include – be sure to add items you know you need to include to the checklist.
We have a wide range of organizational pages – we know you won’t use them all but we wanted to include many possibilities so you could choose the ones that will fit your room.
As teachers, we have always liked to include forms that help substitute teachers know the needs of students without breaking confidentiality rules. The range of forms included can be adapted to fit the information you are comfortable with sharing with a substitute.
Remember to include detailed schedules, procedures and passwords that might be needed throughout the day. Also, don’t forget a seating chart! We like the idea of including photos on the seating chart.
