Fabulous Friday Freebies!

This week's Fabulous Friday Freebies focus on something that just about every teacher has in their back pocket - sub plans! Sub plans can take a long time to put together when you know you will be absent, so it's nice to have some plans ready to go for those days when an emergency arises and you won't be able to go into work. Sub plans are even better when they are already made and free!

This is a great freebie I have used as a sub plan for my high school art classes. It worked great and students seemed to enjoy it. It was very easy to print it out and make copies as well. There are also some word searches and how to draw printable pages available through the link as well.


For you language arts teachers out there, check out this language arts packet which includes an excerpt and several related worksheets. It's a great freebie and available in Microsoft Word so you can make changes or add/delete questions as needed.

I am also impressed by these sub plans put together by Rachel Friedrich. She has free whole day elementary sub plans for grade levels K-5! Each packet contains a warm-up, language arts, reading, math, and science activity. There are many links and ways to enhance the plans as well.

I hope these plans save you time and keep the headaches away.


  1. Hi.........I hope you don't mind, but I posted a link back to this post on my blog for art teachers. "Art Sub Plans."


  2. Of course! Thank you so much for letting me know. I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. The lesson was very easy to do and it kept my students working for the entire class (or so I heard).

  3. I just discovered your blog and love it! Even though I teach Firsties, I am getting ideas from y'all! I am your newest follower. I would love for you to come visit me when you get the chance. I try and share encouraging poems about how our first job is to touch the hearts of our kiddos before we can reach their heads.

    Blessings to you,
    Heather's Heart

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I am so glad you could find some ideas here to use in your classroom. I will definitely have to check out your blog.

      Thanks again,
