I am quickly coming up on my official start date, September 16th (this Monday!), so I wanted to share the contents of my supply bag with you. I finally put everything into my pretty bag this morning.
The books I have packed in my bag include: Elementary Teacher's Discipline Problem Solver (A GREAT read, it covers almost every problem you could encounter with a student and how to solve it, in numbered steps), Super Sub (Substitute ideas and tips), 100 Ideas for Primary Supply Teachers, Five- Minute Fairy Tales (I picked this up at a local thrift shop for £1.25. I thought this would be good for days that there are no lessons left, there are many literacy activities that can be quickly thought up around fairy tales), Eenie Meenie Manitoba (A collection of Canadian poetry), Miss Nelson is Missing! (To go along with the My Teacher is Missing worksheets), and finally my map of Suffolk with all the nearby schools circled.
Here are my two sets of activities purchased from TPT. First, is the My Teacher is Missing! Sub Plan Pack created by Christina over at Second Grade Sugar and Spice. Second, is the Mystery Box activity created by Abby over at The Inspired Apple. I'm really excited to give these both a go!
Here is the mystery box I've created (It's small enough to fit in my bag to take to school every day).
My mystery box has a globe inside! I've been trying to think up clue ideas for it...so far I have 'it's round', I have some brainstorming to do tomorrow (unless any of you have ideas).
A clip board, just in case.
Stickers! Also, sticky notes, scissors, calculator, calendar, and adorable maple leaf stamper.
Pencil case with all of the essentials.
And of course a cute lunch pail.
Well, that's my supply bag for now. Hopefully I'll survive my first week. Wish me luck, and let me know if you have any other supply teacher suggestions!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
