No More Sick-Day Stress

Swap Your Sub Plans for Digital Student Plans

Writing substitute teacher plans can put teachers into full on panic-mode. Who needs the added stress when you’re already feeling terrible?! Wouldn’t it be great if you could quickly put together an easy-to-follow lesson plan for your students in your absence? Rather than trying to cram all of the notes and directions for the sub into a coherent doc, create a step-by-step plan for your students to follow. Instead of sub plans, write student plans! With readily available technology, students can work through your digital lesson independently. The benefits are countless:

  • Create digital plans quickly from home using digital resources.
  • Keep students on track with the scope and sequence of the curriculum. No more busy work or time fillers!
  • Eliminate substitute teacher confusion and misunderstanding.
  • Allow the substitute to simply monitor student work time and focus attention on behavior supervision.
  • Review submitted student work from home to prepare for your return back to work. 
Convinced? Here are 4 great tips for going digital with your "student plans”:
