Substitute Teacher Report

Swing EducationClassroom Management6 Comments

Successful substitute teaching involves completing the day with a thorough substitute teacher report.  These reports are designed to summarize your observations about students and the lesson plans.  Some teachers will prepare printable materials and references ahead of time, but in case you’re substitute teaching without these resources, you can use our report below!

Make sure that you give credit to students who were outstanding and identify students who struggled with the lesson plans.  This way, the teacher will know which students need extra encouragement and support when he or she returns to work.  It’s also important to be honest about any modifications you’ve done to the lesson plans. Highlight some wins and explain what the students enjoyed the most during class time.

  1. This is an excellent generic substitute form which looks like it would be quick and easy to fill out for the teacher. Do teachers respond to the form telling whether or not it was helpful for them to know about the situation during their absence? I think that would be helpful for the substitute, in order to avoid an invisible person phenomenon in the room.

  2. I really love this form. You an use it even if some teachers have their own. In addition to this report I comment directly on the lesson plan as each lesson or time period is completed.

  3. I love this material, I am a long term sub, 3 kinders, 9 -2nd graders, and the rest are First graders. Total of 25. I have to teach all 3 grades. I have behavior, vision imparied, emotional, dyslexia and speech all in my class. Tips? 5 teachers walked out on them. I do not want to be the sixth. Is your material free!

  4. This is a reasonable data collection document for me to record to give to homeroom teachers.
