What is included in these 4th Grade Language Arts Sub Plans? 

Each lesson in the 4th grade language arts sub plans is simple enough for the sub to follow, but will engage your students in authentic learning …and not just busy work. Each lesson plan has a section for teacher notes at the bottom for any notes you’d like to leave for the sub (or for the sub to leave you notes!) All the graphic organizers, activities, or worksheets needed to complete every lesson are included.

  • Language Arts topics include: homophones, prepositional phrases, idioms, fixing sentences, and homophones review
  • Silent Reading Comprehension Strategy Lesson topics: text questioning, making connections, visualizing, summarizing, and the main idea
  • Differentiated Reading Passages: Three differentiated reading passages are included. Choose the best one or use all three and differentiate. The topic of the reading passages includes a sick teacher, soccer, movie popcorn, reading, and middle ages
  • Writing topics include: opinion writing, narrative writing, informative writing, acrostic poetry, and friendly letter writing

In addition to the 4th grade ELA lessons, the following is also included:

  • Educational Games
  • “Just Add A Task” Board Game: This board game is nearly ready to go! All that’s left to do is add a task- such as a spelling or vocab list or math flash cards. It can also be played just for fun without a task. Color and B&W versions included.

Awesome Life Saver!

As I printed my plans, my excitement grew over the possibility of not stressing every time I need a sub. I have young children who can’t stay home alone sick so that doubles the likelihood of needing that sub and scrambling to put together plans. These sub plans are changing all that! I know feel comfort knowing that my students will have engaging and rigorous activities no matter who fills in as a sub. Thank you!!
