Emergency Sub Plans for Math

Hi everyone!

I really need your input on this subject. We are asked to have ready 5 days worth of emergency sub plans in case of an emergency. I wanted to know what you all include in your emergency sub plans for Math or what you would include in it. I'm thinking about adding some multiplication and division review but I know my students would probably zip through those and Math is an hour long. I would really appreciate your input. Thanks in advance for your help!

I always include a math game like QUIZMO and some worksheets from Mailbox or Teachers Helper. I also have a great book called Kaleidoscope Math that the kids enjoy. It has a sheet of facts/problems on one side and color by sum/difference/product/quotient kaleidoscope design on the other. This usually keeps everyone busy.

Can you please explain what Quizmo is?

I also like to play the game of SKUNK. It's reviews mental math facts, decision making skills and experimental probability.
All you need is 2 diCe and have students take out a blank piece of paper and draw 5 Columns, or use the worksheet from the link below.

Quizmo is a bingo style game. You can purchase these games online or at your local teacher store. I have mult/div, place value, and fractions. Some of my colleagues have geometry, add/sub, and decimals. They are well made and worth the investment (about \$12).

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! Another teacher at my school suggested I use www.math-drills.com to create math review sheets for my emergency sub plans. I really found great resources on this site to help my students practice multiplication and division since they don't know all their facts.
