Free Substitute Note Forms for All Year Round

Inside: Why you should be leaving substitute note forms for your subs & links to get FREE sub note forms.

As a teacher, it can be a challenge to give up control of your classroom at times, because we don’t know what happened while we are away. It can take some time to figure out what was done and what was not… even when you leave detailed sub plans. Sometimes, substitutes just don’t leave very detailed notes for us (Or even notes at all!) when we are away from our classroom.

I used to always get frustrated with substitute teachers because they didn’t leave me notes! I had no idea what had happened in my classroom while I was gone due to the lack of a sub note. That’s when I started leaving a sub note form for them and I found that it made it WAY more likely that my substitutes left detailed notes.

Why does leaving a substitute note form help?

It serves as a reminder to leave notes in the first place. By leaving a blank form on the desk with your sub plans, they will know that you expect them to fill it out before they leave!

The substitute note forms also let the substitute know what you’d like to know. Do you want to know which students did a great job so you can reward them? Any students who struggled so you can talk with them about what happened? And what about what the sub didn’t get to in the sub plans? That way, you know you either need to do them with the kids yourself or that you can leave it with the next sub.

Don’t want to add the extra step of having to make your own substitute note form?

Well, you’re in luck! I’ve got a freebie for you that covers all of those bases. The “How Did Your Day Go? Substitute Notes Forms” are perfect for every time you have a substitute. There are four versions for all four seasons- Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring!
