These spring themed May sub plans for 1st and 2nd grade are perfect for your substitute plans! First and second grade students will love these activities and you can rest easy knowing they are busy with meaningful math activities while you are away.
Copies for students pages and a lesson checklist are included to make your prep easy peasy! Then, each math lesson includes: A quick math review, fluency practice, math riddle activity, word problem activity, backwards story problem activity, and a math game.

WHAT HAVE PEOPLE SAID ABOUT MY SUB PLANS PREVIOUSLY? You can find these reviews on my “Ready To Go Sub Plans” on TpT, which follow the same formatting as these brand new ones.
“These sub plans have been the BEST discovery I have made! Thank you for making these wonderful and all inclusive plans that are so easy to use, especially when you are sick and the last thing you want to do is write sub plans!”
“I have purchased several sets of emergency sub plans, and they just never fit my needs. These, however, are just what I’ve been looking for! Easy prep, easy for the sub to follow! I recommend this to anyone needing emergency plans.”
“These are fantastic! I purchased, copied, and stored in a sub tub. I told a neighbor where the tub was and all she did was put my tub on my desk and the day ran SO SMOOTHLY!”
