I have an interview tomorrow (11/11/15) for a 5th grade LTS job that would go the rest of the school year. I have not taught 5th before. Any suggestions for how to prepare are welcome! Thanks!

Lol, I had to check to see where you were from in case you were interviewing with me. Our LTS interview is Thursday morning in Virginia though. Good luck with your interview!
Answer the questions honestly and connect it with the experiences you've had. What other grades have you taught? Honestly I'd take someone with flexibility, background knowledge and experience with the general flow of a classroom. Even if they don't know the specifics of 5th grade, if they generally know how to structure the language arts class, we'll help the sub get up to date with the rest.
Best of luck!

For the encouragement. I taught third grade last year after several years of staying home with children. At the end of the year my contact was not renewed for no stated reason. So I'm dealing with a lack of confidence but will have to fake it tomorrow.

but that's okay. The class size was very large and it would have been quite a challenging situation. Maybe it wouldn't have been the best spot for me at this point. Thanks for your interest.
