December Worksheet for Early Finishers - Create a Reindeer in Disguise

This December worksheet for early finishers is a creative activity and time filler. Students will enjoy drawing this reindeer in disguise. A sub would also enjoy having an activity to hand to students who need to occupy their time when their assignment is complete. This worksheet shows sample details, but students are encouraged to invent their own. The only supplies needed are pencils and crayons.





You may find this worksheet at my TeachersPayTeachers shop here:  
Art Sub Lessons

Calligrams

This is a lesson you might create for a sub. Some classes might benefit from having a variety of templates on hand. (Generally, I am not a big fan of templates in the art room, but a sub will need all the help they can get.)

Mrs. Art Teacher taught this in middle school.

Disguise a Turkey

Early Finishers - Art Activity for November
What is a sub or teacher to do when students finish their lesson early? That's the time when behavior problems often occur. So here is a fun and creative worksheet to have at hand for just that circumstance. This is based on a classic lesson in which students alter the appearance of a turkey to help him escape Thanksgiving dinner. This could be a great lead in for a Writers' Workshop lesson. The supplies needed for this worksheet are pencils and crayons or markers.

Preparing for a Maternity Sub in the Art Room

What an amazing resource! Ashley, at the blog, Teach and Shoot, gives a detailed post about her preparations for maternity leave.


I would also suggest that you visit my TeachersPayTeachers shop for Art Sub Lessons.  There are many resources already prepared for your sub.  Don't spend all that time trying to write plans.  I have already done that for you!
