For teachers, the thought of writing a lesson plan for a substitute or as a new teacher can be daunting. Questions such as, “How well do they know life science?” or “How detailed do I need to be to explain how to find common multiples?” commonly cross a teacher’s mind when determining the level of information needed in a substitute teacher lesson plan.
Sometimes the thought of writing the lesson plan can be so overwhelming, that the day out of the office does not even seem worth it — forcing teachers to power through work sick or miss an important training opportunity.
With Daybreak Lesson Plans, teachers no longer need to worry about writing lesson plans for substitutes. Daybreak Lesson Plans offers lesson plans that are scripted and easy for anyone to follow.
Say goodbye to the endless hours spent crafting plans, aligning curriculum to standards, and forming summative assessments for substitute teachers. Instead, teachers who count on Daybreak Lesson Plans are reclaiming the nights and weekends otherwise spent devising lesson plans from scratch — and they often get plans for no more than the cost of their morning coffee.
When you buy one of our 4th-grade lesson lesson plans at Daybreak Lesson Plans, you’re getting carefully vetted, effective lesson plans from experienced teachers you can trust.

Our lesson plans embody many of the curriculum areas that 4th-grade teachers need most. From 4th-grade math lesson plans to 4th-grade language arts lesson plans to 4th-reading lesson plans, Daybreak Lesson Plans has you covered.
Here are a couple of examples of our lesson plans:
- A half-day language arts lesson might ask students to read informational text about Native Americans and then recount the information in a Bingo game.
- A one-hour lesson might ask students to apply area formulas to solve real-world problems, and a whole-day lesson intertwines summarization with crossword puzzles.
