  1. Anna

    Love these printables! Great for any subject or grade! Awesome resource!

  2. Emily Crider

    An amazing product. So well organized and user friendly

  3. khecht4 (verified owner)

    I have been looking for a resource like this FOREVER. The seating chart alone was enough to make me click “add to cart” but for 8 dollars? This is a steal! Everything a substitute could possibly need are in these notes. Leaving a sub clear, consistent forms will make you feel so much better about taking the day off, and these forms are formatted for you to come back and have the information to put your best foot forward. I would highly recommend this.

  4. mgough

    Such a game changer. I remember the first time another teacher came into my classroom and saw my Sub plans they were totally impressed. I said, “honestly I can’t take the credit it belongs to “wife teacher mommy”, I simply edited the forms and downloaded them it was so simple. I also loved the little punch card incentives for the students. It truly is a wonderful resource and such a time saver! I would highly recommend this product and can’t wait to try others!
