Art Sub Lessons and Binder Info

This packet of editable documents, easy art lessons, and sub binder organizers will help get you on the way to worry-free art sub plans.

Imagine preparing for a sub without staying late.  Or waking up sick without the sinking feeling of not having sub plans.  Expressive Monkey has prepared easy art lessons in this packet that your students will enjoy and you will actually want them to use.  They are all based on art concepts and terms but are simple enough for a sub to understand and for students to finish in one class.

This packet will help you customize and organize your sub binder using the following items:

• 2 cover sheets and 5 Colorful title pages (or divider pages) to organize your sub binder (in 3 styles):

  •       Schedules
  •       Sub  Lessons
  •       Emergency Information
  •       Helpful Information
  •       Art Room Procedures

(21 pages)

• A checklist of things to include in a "Sub Binder" with helpful hints. (2 pages)

• Table of contents for the lessons with thumbnail images of the artwork (to make picking a lesson easier for the sub). (1 page)

• Instruction pages for 10 easy lessons. The one-page instruction sheets for each lesson includes a description, a small image of the finished art, vocabulary words and definitions,  a list of supplies needed, step-by-step instructions.  (23 pages)

I've also included a folder of lessons with the "British Spelling" of several words at no additional charge.

• All of the pages listed above are in PDF format and NOT EDITABLE.  You will, however, also get a folder of png files that will give you a blank cover in each of the 3 styles, plus a blank lesson page.  You can put the png files in your own software and use text boxes to add your own information.  (5 pages)

• 3 editable Word documents that include:

  •   Procedures
  •    Daily Schedule
  •    Weekly Schedule
  •    Room Map
  •    Note to Sub
  •    Table of Contents
  •    Sub Report

(9 pages)

I've made the 9 pages of documents listed above in Word so that they are fully editable.  You can even move around the elements in the map of the room to give the sub a quick overview of where things are located in your room.  You can change the times and teacher names in the schedules (add or delete columns as needed).
