➡️ Editable binder pages

There are 22 different pages in this section.  These pages are where you enter information about your library, procedures, duties, emergency information etc.  I have also included pages for you to add suggested books, videos, and web sites that a substitute might want to use.  Plus 2 pages of reading response questions that a substitute can use after reading a fiction or nonfiction book to students.  All of the text is fully editable. You can add, delete, or change whatever you would like.

***Only the text can be changed on the editable pages.  The images cannot be changed due to copyright restrictions.

➡️ Time fillers and brain breaks

4 different sets of quick ideas and discussion prompts that a substitute can pull out when there is extra time or when students need a brain break or quick movement activity. There are cards for all grades K-5 with suggested grade levels on the cards.

25 pages of no-prep worksheets and activities for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. These include graphic organizers, writing activities, story response, reading comprehension and much more!

PLEASE NOTE:  This is included in both of my Librarian Survival Kits.  If you have purchased either of those products, you do not need to purchase the Substitute Bundle.
