You’ll get everything you need to set up an Art Sub Binder with helpful information for your sub and 10 easy lesson plans that students will enjoy and you’ll feel great about!

Imagine preparing for a sub without staying late, or waking up sick without the sinking feeling of not having sub plans!!  This is a game-changer!

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

2 cover sheets and 5 divider pages to organize your sub binder (in 3 style choices) The divider pages are the following categories:

  • The Cover “Sub Binder”
  • Schedules

• 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.  (33 pages)

• I’ve also included a folder of lessons with the “British Spelling” of several words at no additional charge. (colour, favourite, and centre)

• 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 and blank watercolor pages.  You can put the png files in your own software and use text boxes to add your own information.  (7 pages)
