Reply To: Lesson Plan Ideas for Maternity Leave
I had my student teacher from the year before come back and do my maternity leave. Do you know who your sub will be? I was able to get my plans up way in advance because I knew exactly what I could do. What about an 8th grader conducting for the sub? If you had a kid that was really good you could teach him/her a few things and have them conduct. Maybe not all the time but just a couple times a week to keep them playing. Another idea if you use it as a general music class is to have them get into groups of 5 or so and make their own musical board games. They come up with musical questions (i do 30), they design the board, and make everything and then play each other board games. I do this in 5th grade, but any grade level I am sure would love the project.
