Whether you are a substitute teacher whose lessons fall short of filling up the day or a permanent classroom teacher whose days involve lots of little transitional moments, these lessons will work for you! Included: Ten great activities for substitutes and classroom teachers!
The following activities are the perfect addition to a substitute teacher's bag of tricks! Each is quick and easy, and most require only a few easy-to-find materials. Best of all, they're not just time fillers; they're mind fillers as well -- real lessons for real learning!
