I never cared much whether subs followed my plans or not. I didn't grade work that kids did when I wasn't around. I was happy if the room was orderly and tidy when I got back.

I left simple, easy to follow plans that didn't stress me or the sub out.
I do this as well. I write detailed plans for the sub but always emphasize that all things are flexible. I give the sub permission ahead of time to change, add, remove, reorder and/or skip things. I do not want the day to be a burden on me, the sub or the students.

I do have a classroom para and a 1:1 para in my room. I do wish that the classroom para could be my sub and they would hire a sub for her position. It would make things so much easier.

I do teach SpEd though so my plans are rough to follow any given day, especially for someone just coming in for a short time. It can be confusing and overwhelming as I do very little whole group instruction. Sometimes it is a juggle act to mix small group and individual instructions.

It shouldn't be the sub's fault that some plans (and some classes) are too complex.
