Do you normally leave sort of babysitting work for subs, or do you actually have them teach/work?

As a sub, I find that I see both. I much prefer being able to teach though. The kids are much better behaved then!

Tuesday, I got to really shine. I was in for a teacher Monday who was really sick. She called me Monday night and asked if I'd fill in on Tuesday and just build off of what we did Monday. I'd introduced two new units on Monday and it was a lot of fun!

A little bit of both. When I am not with them they tend to rush through their work. So I have to have extra activities for the sub to be able to pull from when they finish faster than planned. Always in my sub tub you will find sight word bingo.

I am one half of a collaborative pair, so when I need to be out, my teaching partner just carries on (or vice versa).

I have recently quit teaching and I've become a sub, so I have been kind of interested in who leaves babysitting work and who doesn't.

It depends. I sometimes leave a little of both. If I know the sub-and it's one I know can handle "real" work-I leave everything I would normally teach. We have a couple that struggle with subbing, and I try not to leave anything too tricky.

My new difficulty with subs - is I've been trying to leave certain routine-y type things on the SmartBoard (our morning check-in, Daily 5 check-in, math lesson, etc) but some subs have no idea how to use a computer or a SmartBoard. I'm often semi- afraid that I'll come back to something broken!

Our district does a training for us with the SmartBoard. The problem is, it's optional, not paid, and is only offered once a school year so subs often spend months subbing before they can do the training. (And until the training, they're not allowed on the computers at all.)

I always try to leave something engaging and objective-driven so the sub won't have too difficult of a day. Then again, with middle schoolers, all bets are off.

Ours is talking about doing some kind of training, but I'm not sure when or how that will happen. At this point, I only have a couple subs that I would dare give my password too. We really shouldn't give them out at all...since we have certain RtI scores, grades, etc. on there. I'm hoping they'll make a guest login of some kind.

Yea, once we do the training we get our own login. (Also our schools have a generic student login subs can use if they need it. It's just more locked down (obviously).

The district I'm currently subbing in says not to use the computer at all unless you have to for the lesson plan. But I've yet to see a lesson plan asking me to use it. I've asked subs to use them before and they never have. It is so frustrating when they don't follow the lesson plan I left. Also, the district I sub for says that you are NOT allowed to not follow it.
