3. EDITABLE Book List

This editable book list contains titles and authors as well as links to places where it can be purchased if you don’t have the library. It also includes suggested grades, concepts, and other information. This section consists mainly of books that can either be heard or have a CD. My subs have difficulty singing to children’s books, as I found. Some songs for kindergarten and preschool could be sung. However, they are familiar with children’s song lyrics.

4. 4.

Sometimes, a video is best for certain sub-subjects and situations. Here is the video with the title, purchase information, recommended grade levels, and how they can be used to teach.

5. Fourteen singing games – instructions and lyrics

My students love it when I leave them singing songs that they have learned in class. By doing this, my students continue to practice and prepare the concepts that they are learning.

File folder with MP3s of me singing my favorite songs for 14 kids. They don’t get too loud that it makes it difficult to leave the room without a sub. These are not studio recordings. They are simply a cappella. These will help your sub understand the song, or students to get the song started in the right key. They may also help you remember it if they are unfamiliar with the song.

The songs I included in mp3s had lyrics. However, they did not have sheet music. They also got game directions and instructions so that my subs would know what to do.

This section does not have the purpose to teach a class new games. If you are leaving a singing game to a sub, it is important that they know the basics of how to use it. It is necessary to indicate which grades can participate in which singing games.

Take note: Some sections will require some work to put together. You can print the materials, make a CD with the MP3’s, and complete the editable pages. But once everything is in place, you won’t need to worry about what to do if your kids get sick. You may not want to print this and take it with you unless your children are familiar with the song games or you have plenty of books. However, once you get the book assembled it will be something that you’ll use for many years.

It takes out the headache of creating sub-plans! Pre-made recordings are great because my voice doesn’t sound the best when recording my own voices. I am grateful for your help!

You are a fantastic resource. Finally, I have plans for a sub that will follow. It didn’t make sense to me that “The sub required us to watch_____.” You are very kind!
