Need a quick activity your sub can do this spring? Here are three straightforward options.
#1 Digital “Magnetic” Tiles for Poetry
I’ve been hearing from so many teachers this year that this digital activity is fun, effective, and easy to roll out. In fact, since I first made the free gratitude kit back in November, I’ve had so many requests that I’ve also made themed kits for winter, education, love and spring.
For this digital poetry activity, kids drag and drop words around on a fun background, then delete everything that’s left to produce a beautiful poetry slide.
You can sign up below for the free gratitude kit (and to get my weekly emails), or read up on how to make your own digital poetry tiles in this post.
#2 Read Aloud Day
Want to get your students excited about all the great options in your classroom library or local e-library? Pick out some of the wonderful first chapters available free online for your sub to play for your students. You’ll find eleven great options in this post. You can have students rank what they hear and jot notes down on why/if they might want to read it in the future, or have them sketchnote as they listen if you choose one longer first chapter to play for them (grab my free sketchnotes template pack here).
