|FREE Sub Report|
Around the holiday season seems to be the time of year that teachers tend to take off a little more frequently.
Whether they are under the weather themselves, or one of their personal kiddos is home sick, ’tis the season for needing subs!
Teachers are people too!
We also deserve a little time off to do some holiday shopping, or even to just take a mental health day. I used to always save a few of my sub days to take off and get my Christmas shopping done.
What would always hold me back from taking a day for myself, besides being away from my students, was doing the DREADED SUB PLANS!
I finally put together a Sub Binder that I could use over and over again! 🙂 If you have not already done this, please do yourself a favor and do this!!
One of my favorite components that I added to my Sub Management Binder is the Sub Report.
I created the Sub Report because I wanted an account of how the day went while I was away from the classroom.
Check out the sample Sub Report below:

Occasionally, I have had to contact a sub to ask about a certain event or interaction with one of my students. I included a place for the sub’s name and contact information so that I can easily get in touch with them if I need to.
I included a section that focuses on classroom behavior. I like to get an overall sense of how my class “generally” behaved.
The substitute can rate the behavior as follows:
- Awesome = 1
- Good = 2
- Average = 3
- Needs improvement = 4
- Poor = 5
If you have classes that switch throughout the day, I suggest that you make a separate copy for each class that rotates to your classroom.
- no shoes for a day
- sit by a friend
- sit by a friend at lunch
- 30 minutes of free time
- 15 minutes of free drawing
- extra centers / literacy station time
- 30 minutes of game time
- 15 minutes of extra recess
- 30 minutes of an educational video
Besides asking the sub to leave an overall rating for the classroom behavior, I also like to get names of individual students that showed outstanding behavior, as well as students that required extra behavior reminders.
Let your kiddos know about these two parts of the report ahead of time, too. If you want, you can reward those students that receive special recognition for having awesome behavior while you were out.
Of course I want to know who was absent and who was tardy, so I included a section for that as well.
You will want to get lesson reflections from your substitute. If the lesson didn’t go well, or if your students struggled with understanding the concept, you will want to know.
The last section I included on the Sub Report is just a section of open note space. Your substitute can leave any other feedback or comments that they feel you need to know.
This little form has been a life saver for me in the past!
On certain occasions, I have even had my neighboring teacher take a picture of The Sub Report at the end of the day and text it to me, so I will know what to expect when I arrive at school the next day.
