Task Cards for a Substitute teacher!

Funny Get Well Ecard: Teaching - The only profession where you have to do more work to call in sick than if you just suffered through it.
Student and Sub approved!

Not too long ago, I felt absolutely awful and had to take a sick day.   I had no sub plans ready to go (I mean - I never get sick!)  I realized that my "Emergency" sub plans were way too generic, so I had to make a special trip to school and 9:30 at night to get my plans around.  Not fun.

Well, and hour and a half later, I was still struggling to get decent plans made.  I was angry at myself for not having plans ready-made and getting frustrated that it was taking me so long.

That was when I realized that task cards really ARE the answer!  I had some task cards that I had made for my Teachers Pay Teachers store and knew that I had hit the answer right on the head!  I typed up directions for several task card games, made sure I included the answer key and a quick tutorial on how to solve the math problems (I've learned that math can be quite intimidating for subs), and I was good to go!

Here is a link to the task cards that I left for my sub:  Task Cards!

If your not into Area and Perimeter, how about "Used and Abused Verbs", which are task cards reinforcing the correct usage of commonly misused verbs - including took/taken (my students say "Tooken"!!UGH!!), did/done, isn't/aren't/ain't;  you get the picture.  Click here:   Used and Abused Verbs Task Cards

I love the idea of having students make their own task cards.  (Sounds like a future blog post!!)  I have some blank task cards available for just that purpose!  Here are ink saving task cards:  Ink Saver Task Cards - Make Your Own!  They're only $1!  Great for exit tickets and reviewing!

Or, if you don't mind the extra ink - here are some colored ones:  Colored task cards - make your own!

I've had 2 different subs and both of them enjoyed the games - so did the kids!

Seriously - using task cards for substitute teachers is such a NO-BRAINER! What took me so looooong?!?!?
