My first job interview for a full-time teaching job is tomorrow!!! AND one next week! I can't believe I got two so quickly. Honestly, I barely even expected to get one! I can't wait to see how it goes! Wish me luck!
I created this Saint Patrick's Day story starter this morning in hopes that I may get to use it on Monday. I'm subbing on Saint Patrick's Day this year in a second grade class. I just bought a huge bag of gold coins so that I could sent up a "treasure hunt" that the leprechaun left for them while they were at recess!
After today I need a serious nap. I took two half day sub jobs and went from one school in the morning to another in the afternoon. It sounded fine but, today in the morning I was in three different classrooms! Then, I realized I would have pretty much no time to eat lunch in between. It was kinda crazy. But, I do love crazy!
I thought I would share what goes inside my sub bag. I'm sure I will add more or take away some as time goes on but, here's what I'm starting with. I looked at a few other sub bloggers to see what they have and went from there based on my experience and needs.
Bag from Thrity One Gifts
- Foldable File Folder -
To keep all my printables in for emergency plans. I have it organized based on grade level. I also keep copies of my sub report in here.
- Treasure Supplies & Behavior Management -
I have two bags full of goodies (pencils, erasers, stretchy bracelets, bookmarks, bubbles, etc)
I give out tickets throughout the day, the kids write their name on the back and put the ticket in my flower box. At the end of the day I pull three names and they get to pick from the bags.
- Stickers -
- Avery Return Address Labels -
For name tags :)
They are WAYYYY cheaper than actual name tags.
- Fun Books -
I try to choose books that I already know some activities for just in case.
- Whistle -
For those days you may have recess duty.
- USB Flash Drive -
For all my emergency sub plans.
- Education Magazines -
To read during my lunch break.
- LOTS of pens and pencils. & Chapstick, of course! -
I had an event this week and had to wear a black or black & white outfit. Here are the three choices I came up with. I hope you had a great weekend! I am beginning my first full week of subbing this week and am THRILLED! I started Friday with a half day and I loved it! All the teachers in the building told me that it can be a really rough school and to not get discouraged but, I thought it was great. Working with those kids is so rewarding! I can't wait to share tips and stories!
Hello, all! I hope you enjoyed the newsletter for this month. I went through my closet today trying on some different teaching outfits since I start again on Friday. I found this one on accident and just thought I would share!
I am officially starting my substitute teaching job next week! Super nervous and excited! I can't wait to get back into the district that I student taught. I have been printing out some emergency plans to be extra prepared. Here is the sub report that I made this morning. I hope you may get some use out of it, too!
