What's the difference between the sub binders and the sub plans?
Having both a sub tub and a sub binder available is crucial for being fully prepared for a substitute teacher. This is why we have created resources for both at WifeTeacherMommy.com! Thousands of teachers have used and trusted our sub planning resources to make planning for a sub as pain-free as possible. But some teachers are unsure of the differences between our sub binders and our sub plans, and which they need.
The short answer is, both. They were made to work together. On WifeTeacherMommy.com, sub plans and sub binders are two separate things. Let's clarify the difference between the two terms.
Sub Binders: The sub binder will tell the information that your sub needs to know about how to run your classroom. So when you purchase one of our sub binders, you'll get an editable document that you fill in with information about your class, procedures, etc. Be sure to check out our Editable Sub Binder and The Complete Short & Long Term Sub Binder Bundle!
Sub Plans: The sub plans include the actual content that the substitute will be teaching. Our sub plans include print-and-go lesson plans and activities that make planning for a sub as stress free as possible. The sub plans are aligned to grade level standards and they include actual learning, not just busy work. Teachers love that these sub plans include an actual lesson that is simple enough for any sub to follow, but includes real learning and not just busy work. We currently have sub plans for pre-K through 6th grades, combined or departmentalized subjects, year-round sub plans or monthly themed, and even maternity leave sub plans! Click here to see all of our sub plans. Sub plans for 7-12th grade teachers are coming soon, as well!
