As a teacher, it can be a challenge to give up control of your classroom at times, because we don’t know what happened while we are away. It can take some time to figure out what was done and what was not… even when you leave detailed sub plans. Sometimes, substitutes just don’t leave very detailed notes for us when they are away. (Or even notes at all!)
One way to make it more likely that you will get the detailed notes you’d like is by leaving a notes form for them. It serves as a reminder to leave notes in the first place. By leaving a blank form on the desk with your sub plans, they will know that you expect them to fill it out before they leave!
The substitute notes forms also lets the substitute know what you’d like to know. Do you want to know which students did a great job so you can reward them? Any students who struggled so you can talk with them about what happened? And what about what the sub didn’t get to in the sub plans? That way, you know you either need to do them with the kids yourself, or that you can leave it with the next sub.
Well, you’re in luck! I’ve got a freebie for you that covers all of those bases. The “How Did Your Day Go? Substitute Notes Forms” are perfect for every time you have a substitute. There are four versions for all four seasons- Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring!
