As a teacher, planning for a sub on a day off can be such a chore and added stress! I used to dread looking for resources for the entire day while I was out. To make this task easier for myself, I created nursery rhyme themed emergency sub plans that are great for a sub tub.

Recently, I was out of…

I gave my preschooler a magnet wand to wave over and dig under the grains. As he…

Our science center is stocked with lots of cool magnets and magnetic objects. We started with a basic magnetic/non magnetic sort, and have slowly added more interesting items for the students to explore. This is a pencil with round magnets on it, stacked so that they will repel each other. The preschoolers love to take them off, and put them back on again to see if they will attract or repel.
