Some Tips on Landing Sub Jobs

If you are a sub and not getting as much work as you'd like, come check out my tips for landing sub jobs. There is a free Daily Summary Form and some cool links to marketing tools. If you are a sub with plenty of work, feel free to share additional strategies you use. And if you are a full-time teacher, please offer suggestions for what you look for in a sub and why you would call someone back multiple times.

I find that getting jobs has the most to do with knowing and impressing the right people. Doing those things has not only put me in demand as a daily sub, but has also offered me the opportunities of many long-term jobs as well.

Numbers 100-120 freebie

Right before the break I had my kids do a number spree. I am very happy to report that we did VERY well, but some of us got snagged up on that little fellow number 110.  Many of my students left in their zeros so we ended up in the thousands. So in order to help them out I created a couple of documents.

The above document will also help with sequencing those large numbers too!

I love the game Race to 100 so I thought why not make it go all the way to 200 as well. I think my kids will really enjoy this game and will make a great Math Work Station too!If you like what you see, please think about coming over to my blog to see some more of my ideas at Queen of the First Grade Jungle!

I hope that one of these documents is helpful for you! I also want to thank Hadar at Miss Kindergarten for her post on embedding google docs. I have been having so much trouble with that lately and her tutorial was perfect!
