Read-Aloud Books for Subs

If you ever find yourself finished with the teacher's lesson plans with extra time on your hands, a good read-aloud makes for an effective filler activity. It's a great idea for substitutes to carry a book or two with them in their substitute toolkit. Make sure you read through the book before reading it out loud to ensure that it's age and content appropriate.

We found a great blog post on SubSidekick.com which outlines 4 excellent children's books for subs to carry with them. These selections feature meaningful morals and are sure to captivate your students' attention!

Bonus Tip: As you read, keep students engaged by pausing to ask thought-provoking questions.
