Lesson Plans by Grade Level

As a teacher or school administrator, you likely already have enough on your plate. The time spent in your classroom with your students is precious. Every minute counts when it comes to building young minds to become the thinkers and doers of tomorrow. With so much of your time being taken by teaching, grading and classroom management, an unexpected illness or family emergency can throw your schedule into chaos. Taking time away from your classroom duties for any reason is a disruption you can’t easily afford, especially when you have to write detailed lesson plans for your substitute to follow.

That’s why we at Daybreak Lesson Plans have created scripted substitute lesson plans that will ensure your students receive the best instruction, even in your absence. No matter what takes you out of your classroom, you can rest easier knowing that the plans created by Daybreak Lesson Plans will keep your students on track.
