Special Education Sub Plans Bundle

This K-5 special education sub plan bundle was created by popular request! I have compiled lessons from my popular Ready To Go Sub Plans and also created new lessons specifically for this bundle to include lessons at a variety of levels.

I got input from several special ed teachers while putting together this bundle. It is ideal for most special education teachers- both inclusive special education classrooms and resource teachers who pull students out of classrooms.

Please refer to the full description below to see if this product is right for your special education classroom needs!

This is an instant digital download! This means you don’t have to wait for anything to ship. You can print and put together your sub plans right away!


This is a very large and extensive resource. Because of this, I created a separate PDF file for each section and zipped them together in the folder rather than keeping it all together in one large document to scroll through. This makes it super easy to find exactly what you need. Each is numbered and follows the “start here” contents file so you know exactly where to find everything!

The files in the zipped folder include:

Step-By-Step Outline
This outline tells you exactly how to get started and where to find everything.

Editable Forms for your Substitute Binder
These forms are included as a standalone product in my store, but you get the entire bundle AND a bonus Special Education Groups & Lessons section included only in this listing. The form sections include:
-Editable Binder Cover
-Form Filling Instructions
-Note to Substitute
-Bell, School, Alternate and Specials Schedules

BONUS Groups & Lessons Section
Created just for Special Ed, these editable forms are perfect to let your sub know which students will be taught what lessons at which times for small group instruction. This is ideal for if the regular classroom schedule form that is also included does not work for your needs (if you’re pulling students out rather than have all of your students together).

Reading Comprehension Lessons
Three reading comprehension lessons are included. The topics are summarizing, main idea, and making connections. Worksheets at at a variety of levels are included for each lesson. This makes these lessons applicable to both small groups and large groups at different levels!

Make sure to leave information about which activities each student should be doing in your sub plans. This is especially important for special education sub plans.

Writing Lessons
3 writing lessons are included that are applicable to a variety of ages- and includes worksheets that can be used in both small groups and whole group! Topics include a name poem, narrative writing, and friendly letter writing. A bonus A, B, C, letter writing lesson is included for students who are still working on their letters!

Leveled Sight Word Game
This leveled sight words board game includes a board for Pre K- 5th grade sight word levels. All students need is a manipulative of some sort for a game piece!

    In my four years of teaching, I’ve had to take five extended leaves for medical issues. I wish I had come across this sooner. I literally just purchased this and downloaded it immediately. I am currently out on a leave now and changing everything over to these. I am so impressed with the quality and thoroughness. You are a life saver!!

    I woke up in the middle of the night in a panic. I had had a *nightmare* that I had to take a week off work, and I did not have any sub plans for my resource room! At 3 am.. I am searching through all of the resources online trying to find a K-3 (easy to set up) Sub Kit that would not break the bank. And I found it!
    Granted- I am usually the one who posts reviews of “Yeah, this is great. Buy it, I want the points..”
    But no. This resource is AMAZING! It asks all of the questions substitutes ask. Very easy to get ready- I needed ALL of it, and it also took me a minute to think “Oh.. what are our emergency plans?” ???? Now I know I will have EVERYTHING ready for when I need to go to that all-day meeting.. or that much needed long weekend!
    My favorite substitute LOVED it as well! She texted me asking where I got it because she wanted to get it for herself!

    Such an amazing resource and worth every penny! Add in some of the Wife Teacher Mommy Freebies and you are set!

    Thank you for making a product that I can print and use with all the varied levels of my students. I love that I have something ready to go and I don’t have to search long and far to have activities in the event of being gone!
