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 on TPT! 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!”

  1. Victoria Basso (verified owner)

    The lessons are great–just a reminder to check though–this is same packet as Language Arts that is sold seperately

    • Rachael Kimball

      Victoria,
      We apologize for any confusion on the October Homeschool/Sub Plan Packets. The homeschool lessons include the same activities, but the directions are geared towards parents while the sub plans are geared towards teachers and subs.

  2. TerryT (verified owner)

    My students loved the “mad libs” like activities and my sub enjoyed them too! It is a great way to reinforce parts of speech. The other activities are great too.

  3. Nicole Hampton (verified owner)

    Such a time saver for me! Thank you so much for putting these pages together.

  4. REBECCA CORSO (verified owner)

    This product saves so much time and the activities are fun, engaging and easy for the students to do independently!
