Take a piece of colored paper from the center of your table and create a table tent with your first name on it.
To create your table tent, fold the paper into thirds. Then, simply write your first name in the center of the paper using the markers at your table. Stand the paper up in front of you so that others can see your name. See sample at front of room if you have questions.
SuperSub Workshop Angela B. Moore Resource Teacher Human Resources Substitute Teacher Toolkit
Your Task: From the Professional Substitute Teacher Checklist, “teach” your section to our whole group. Provide a quick overview (less than one minute) of your section in whatever way your group decides.
A toolkit is like an emergency preparedness kit for the classroom. It should contain a variety of useful and necessary classroom supplies and materials. The contents of a tool kit can be orgainzed into four categories.
Why Do I Need a Toolkit?
1. Personal and Professional Items
2. Classroom Supplies
3. Rewards and Motivators
4. Activity Materials (fill-in activities)
Sub Toolkit Contents Personal & Professional Activity Everyday Clipboard Substitute Teacher Report District Information ( map ) Coffee mug/water bottle Small package of tissues Snack Hall Pass Small bag or coin purse for money for lunch and driver’s license Band-aids Small sewing kit Picture books Read aloud books Brain teaser/madlibs Fill-in activities Timer Rewards & Motivators Crayons Rubber bands Colored markers, pencils Pencils Pencil sharpener Scissors Glue stick Paper clips Post-it notes Calculator Lined paper Name tag materials
Establish rewards and motivators not as “bribes” to be good but as “goals” that students can work toward and achieve throughout class. With your table, complete the handout titled, “How would YOU use this reward?” Be prepared to share at least three ideas with the whole group.
Leaving feedback for the classroom teacher provides useful information for the teacher. It also provides a connection between you and the teacher for future jobs. Additionally, it can work as a motivator for students to behave appropriately.
Leave more positive comments than negative, if possible. Consider asking the office secretary if you can make a copy of the form to leave for an administrator.
Reflect on what you see your own substitute teaching toolkit becoming.
