Keep a Binder or Tub ready with all of your sub materials. Items could include emergency fire drill list, dismissal list, phone numbers of important people in the school, how to use the phone, computer log-in, important notes about students. Then all you have to do is add in your sub plans for the specific day you're out. Also, keep emergency sub plans in the back just in case you are unexpectedly out. If you use a tub, you can also place the materials needed for the lesson inside.

Sub Tub -- Possible things to include: A Welcome Binder (explaining the daily schedule, where things are in the room and anything the sub might need like computer log-in codes), emergency lesson ideas, great books, games and other activities to do!
