Why Choose Daybreak Lesson Plans?

Our fully scripted lesson plans are written by experienced teachers. They guide substitutes every step of the way, telling them exactly what they should do and say as they teach.

Aligned with Common Core standards, our lesson plans require minimal preparation, making them ideal for a substitute who has just walked into your classroom and doesn’t have time to prepare a lesson. Our lesson plans come in varying lengths, as well, allowing you to fill an hour, a half day or even an entire day, depending on your needs.

More importantly, our lesson plans are not just busy work. They are rigorous and engaging. Walking substitutes through high-quality, effective instruction, these lesson plans will keep your students on track and learning while you’re away, moving toward the educational goals you have set for them. Even inexperienced subs can use our scripted lesson plans with ease. Daybreak Lesson Plans also incorporates “movement breaks,” which are so essential to the focus of young learners. Each lesson plan also has assessment components that will allow you to gauge how well your students have absorbed the lessons they have worked on while you were away.

Our lesson plans are also ideal for introducing your students to a new Common Core standard; reinforcing a standard they have already encountered; or reviewing the standards they learned last year — preparing them to move onto new and more complex ideas.
