Full Day Plan
Mark the roll and record any absences on the Substitute Teaching Day Feedback Form. Identify any students with special educational needs and ensure you are aware of any assistance they may require throughout the day.
Rules and Routines
Establish rules and expectations for the day with the students. Familiarize yourself with the regular routines of the class, as well as any additional activities happening during the day e.g. assembly.
Literacy – Reading Comprehension
Distribute a copy of the Sequencing Activity – Tyrannosaurus Rex (Informative Text) to the students. Read the text as a class. Monitor and support the students as they independently complete the comprehension sequencing task. Once the students have finished, discuss the answers as a class.
Literacy – Writing Task
As a class, discuss some of the facts about Tyrannosaurus Rex mentioned in the comprehension text. Provide each student with a copy of the Informative Texts – Scaffold Planning Sheets. Ask the students to independently use the scaffold to create a fact file about Tyrannosaurus Rex. Once they have finished, encourage volunteers to share their fact files with the class. If time permits, ask the students to create a fact file for an animal of their choice.
Numeracy – Number and Place Value
Distribute a copy of the Number of the Day Worksheet and assign the class a three-digit number. Monitor and support the students as they independently complete the worksheet. Once the students have finished, correct the worksheet together as a class.
Numeracy – Location and Transformation
Provide the students with a copy of the Coordinates Drawing – Lion worksheet. Read the coordinates out to the class so that the students can plot and connect the coordinate points to make a picture. When finished, allow the students to color in their picture. If time permits, provide the students with the Blank Pirate Map Worksheets so that they can create their own coordinates drawing, then swap with a friend to complete.
Literacy – Independent or Shared Reading
Allow the students to independently read an appropriate book of their choice. Alternatively, choose a book to read and share with the students.
Health/P.E. – Physical Education
Choose one of the activities from the Pack of Fun- Quick Fitness Games. Create space inside the classroom, or go outside to the playground to play the game. If time permits, choose multiple games to play.
