Teachers do not like to miss school, but there are times that it is inevitable. Don't get caught without sub plans! Google Slides make it easy to leave detailed digital substitute plans.
Create a slide deck with routines, rules, and activities for each class. Because the Google Slides application makes it easy to add links, pictures, and videos, you can get as detailed as you need to about what you need your sub to know. (Think about adding a video of yourself reminding students about classroom expectations or giving the day's instructions.)
Because you can edit Google Slides anywhere at any time, it is convenient to update sub plans as needed. Email or share a link with your administrator, or simply leave a link to your sub slide deck in your room. Anyone that needs access to your plans has them. That's it!
Tip: When your slide deck is ready, click the Share button. Choose "Get shareable link", and change your share setting to "Anyone with the link" has "View" access (no sign-in required).
