4 Strategies for Writing Sub Plans on Minds in Bloom!

Notice: This is a link to a guest blog post. For the most recent in-depth information, check out my comprehensive guide to emergency sub plans.

One thing that I’ve learned from teaching is that it is literally THE HARDEST job to take a day off! (Well, maybe besides being a parent!) What other job do you have to do more work to call in sick than to just go in and stumble your way through the day? It’s awfully ridiculous.

This is why it is SO important to have emergency sub plans. What if you get sick enough where you can’t come into work, but don’t have sub plans ready? What if there is a family emergency? If you have emergency sub plans that are ready to go, you will have the peace of mind that if something happens, there are some lesson plans on file for your sub. Your students will have something to do- and NO, you won’t have to try to write sub plans while you’re dealing with whatever comes up! Emergency sub plans are the type of thing that you really hope you won’t need- but if you do, you’ll be so thankful that you have them!
Because I believe it is THAT important to have emergency sub plans, I wrote a guest post for Rachel Lynette’s blog, Minds In Bloom, with 4 tips for writing emergency sub plans. This post will give you some tips to make writing your emergency plans as painless as possible. Check out the blog post here! I hope these tips will help you write emergency sub plans that are ideal for your class!
However, what if you don’t even want to deal with the hassle of writing emergency sub plans? Your job as a teacher is hard enough!
