How do you come up with art sub plans in an emergency? When you need lessons for an absence, do you spend hours writing new ones every time? My purpose for this blog is to help you find quality art sub lessons quickly and easily.
Early finishers worksheets are great to have on hand. Subs will especially love them. When kids declare that their work is absolutely finished, it is such a help to hand them something creative to work on. They can engage in a fun activity that gives them a creative outlet. Check this out at my TeachersPayTeachers shop here: Create a Frog in Disguise .
"The worst part of my job is preparing for a sub." That is a statement we can probably all agree with. You need to spend tons of time to describe even the tiniest of directions. That quote is from "Art Project Girl." She made it a little bit easier for you though, by posting this art sub plan.
Who doesn't like freebies? When I offer freebies to the followers of my TeachersPayTeachers shop, I want you to get them too! So, go to my TeachersPayTeachers shop here: Art Sub Lessons on TeachersPay Teachers and click where it says "Follow Me." Ta da!!! When I upload new items, including freebies, you will get a notice. Yay!
Ms. Nguyen had to start teaching at a new school with little or nothing in the way of supplies. She came up with this lesson that used what little she did have. Here is a simple lesson that a sub could possibly do. Check it out at: Art with Mrs. Nguyen.
I love art lessons in which each student's art is uniquely their own . It is even better if you can find a sub lesson that achieves that. This lesson fits the bill well. Hand Creatures by Katie Weymouth Gonzalez.
Those early finishers are extra tough for a sub to handle. There are plenty of things you can give students to do to keep them occupied. I make worksheets for those early finishers. This one is for Groundhog's Day and it costs .99 at my TeachersPayTeachers shop. You may find it here: Groundhog's Day Worksheet for Early Finishers
The worksheet has the lightly drawn outline of a groundhog, on which the students add details. There are also sample details they can refer to and add.
Now, I focus my work on art subs, but this worksheet can also be used by classroom teachers, art teachers and others.
I can only imagine what a headache it is planning lessons for maternity leave. (As if you did not have enough to do already!) My daughter was born before I got an actual teaching job and once I went into labor, I didn't think about work again until I had to go back.
In this post, "Preparing to Leave", Katie Morris explains some of the things she did to prepare for her maternityleave.
This sub lesson is by Cassie Stephens. It is intended for the sub who is not an artist. There are step-by-step drawings of a panda for the students to follow and detailed instructions. It's super cute so give it a look. Here's Cassie's blog at "Cassie Stephens: In the Art Room."
