Sub Tubs® lessons include a full day’s plan with everything your substitute and your students need to have a productive day. Each plan has the same format, but the activities are modified according to the vocabulary studied and the grade-level purchased. The format is designed to be easy-to-read by a busy substitute, and the lessons are different enough to use several days in a row. They are stand-alone, and can be used at any time of the year.
Each day’s PDF contains a 7 page lesson plan and 7 worksheets. The lesson objective are listed below.
