Frog Theme Day for the Sub Tub or Class

Frog theme day plans can be an ace in the hole for that time when a substitute is needed on an emergency basis. Be ready with a full day of print and go activities and place in a tub for a sub in the event you ever need to just call and simply tell the substitute where the materials are located. Of course, a seating chart, maybe name tags, a copy of class procedures, and the class schedule should also be printed. Those kinds of items may already be in the substitute folder, maybe even in the office. This is a 97 page PDF with literacy, writing, math science, and social studies. There are options in the math and writing pages to help provide differentiation. The teacher would indicate which students should work on which pages.

Another set of writing prompts is for more independent writers.

The math pages include some bump games for 3-addends as well as worksheets at different levels.
