Emergency Substitute Lesson Plans
This packet includes lesson plans complete with worksheets and resources. 15 lesson plans cover R/LA, math, science and social studies. These lessons were written for a kindergarten classroom using the U.S. Common Core Standards. The book The Napping House is used for Reading/Language Arts and that theme is used for some other subjects.

This packet was developed so that teachers could copy the lessons, worksheets, resources and put them together in a folder or binder as substitute emergency plans. Please keep in mind that activities and procedures that are specific to a classroom such as Morning Meeting are not included.

Other materials needed for the effective use of the packet include:
