I Survived...The Substitute

       What would your class do if they had Viola Swamp as their substitute teacher?  Would they follow all the rules?  Would you return to a class of total chaos?  In "Miss Nelson is Missing," her class learns a valuable lesson after experiencing a not-so-nice substitute teacher.

      Now, you too can help enforce classroom rules... even when you are away from the classroom.  Simply, use these "I Survived the Substitute Behavior Incentive Cards" available for download at Teachers Pay Teachers.
      These cards are a terrific way to reinforce good behavior; and substitutes will appreciate this one-of-a-kind classroom management tool designed especially for them.  Also, kids will get a kick out of the idea of surviving the substitute... 

Helpful Hints: 
  •  Introduce the cards by reading a book such as Miss Nelson is Missing.           
  • Print onto colorful card stock and cut!  Store them in an envelope with your substitute binder.
