My Substitute Teaching Binder

This year, I have had a ton of Professional Development days including quarterly district grade-level team meetings.
Today is our final meeting of the year, which means sub plans one last time.  Yuck. Are you feeling me on this one?  I dread sub plans, mainly because I am so O.C.D. that it takes me an hour to type up plans for any sub I have... My goal for next year?  Getter' done in 30 minutes or less! 
I thought I would take just a quick moment to share a glimpse of my substitute teaching binder with you!
The file folder seating chart was shared in a variety of formats on Pinterest.  I really liked the idea of movable Post-it's 
so I made one for my sub too!  
Inside of binder:
Tabs to cover all my OCD areas:
If you would like to see the entire PDF that I have created for this year's sub binder, click HERE.  If you like to see the bus list, click HERE.  I completely forgot my flash drive in the computer at school (which has today's lesson plans for the sub on it) so please check back tomorrow and you will be able to click HERE to see that outline as well!
Hope you find this useful and if there is something that you love about YOUR sub plans, please leave a comment!  I am always looking for fresh, new ideas that work well!  Or, if you can help me reduce my O.C.D. sub habits, I would love to hear from you too!


  1. are super organized. Don't you hate that it is easier to go in sick than type up plans?! Thanks for sharing yours... I need to work on that for next year!

  2. I have a sub tub with a ton of things for the sub to do! My biggest fear is they don't have anything to do! On top of the daily work I have like 20 extra things for the sub! Your sub stuff is so organized! LOVE IT!

  6. Hi Julie! I am doing a major catch-up of blog reading and am pinning a bunch of your posts! I love the idea of using a post-it note seating arrangement- brilliant! I also loved your parent helper gifts and end of the year class photo! I have an OCD sub binder too :) Hope to meet up with you at some point this summer!!
