Music teachers have it tough when it comes to preparing for a sub. Like all teachers, you want your students to keep learning while you’re away. Your absences aren’t always planned in advance, which sometimes leaves little time to prepare a lesson. In addition, you aren’t guaranteed that your sub will have any musical background, so you have to be careful what you plan. You also likely see many different grade levels each day, each of which likely requires a separate lesson. So what do you do? Show a music-related film? Run off some worksheets? Stay up all night preparing?
A reliable set of ready-to-use sub plans is just what music teachers need. They can take the stress out of sub preparations while ensuring that the classes you miss are still productive. Out of the Wild Sub Plans from Mrs. Miracle’s Music Room give the K-5 music teacher everything he or she needs to prepare for a sub quickly and easily. No musical expertise is required of the sub, but that doesn’t mean your students won’t be engaged and learning.
