Art Sub Plan - Creative Letter Drawings.

Creative Letter Drawings for First Grade


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.

Elementary Art Sub Plan - Hand Creatures

Back to School - Hand Creatures

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.

Katie did this lesson with her students early in the school year. It is such an open ended art activity, and the kids loved working on it. The interest level was high with this lesson, which makes it a perfect candidate for a lesson to leave for a sub.

Art Sub Plan - Spirals in Nature

Art Sub Plan - Swirl by Swirl


This post was written back in 2012 by Sharpy Woman. I love sub plans that tie into children's books and this one does it well. Check it out here: Swirl By Swirl: Spirals in Nature.

This would be a perfect lesson to write up for an art sub. The book tie in just makes it that much richer of a lessons, and subs need that!
