Art Sub Plans: What to Do When the Lesson is Over
You know subbing is hard. Yikes! We all have witnessed it with our own eyes. The lesson is finished and the sub is there with a class of kids who have nothing else to do. That's a recipe for bad behaviors to flare up
Janine Chen has come up with 50 Quick Activities for When Sub Lessons Run Short. I would suggest that you print out the top five ones you think would work with your students and include them in your sub folder. Some might be new to you. Some are classics. Kids will have fun with them and your sub will love you for it.

Early Finishers Art Activity - Create a Dragon in Disguise
One worksheet shows the lightly drawn in outline of a dragon. Around the sides of the paper are sample details that a student may use to create an original cartoon dragon. I have added an additional full page outline of a dragon that could be used. The student will also add details from their imaginations. After they have added all the details, they are directed to add a background and color their drawing. Much more of a creative outlet than a coloring sheet, your students will enjoy working on their own cartoon. This is one of those art activities in which every creation is a hit!
