Okay. I passed out the paper. Gave the instructions. Suffered through their grumbles. No worries, right?
Except I saw the problem right at the top of first period. There was no way I had enough paper for every period.
First period used about a third of the stack that the teacher left me. Second period more than halved what was left. I ran out just as I passed out the remaining sheets in third period.
I follow lesson plans. This one said, "Don't let them use their own paper." (Emphasis was hers.) But I only carry enough paper with me for my use (like writing notes to the teacher).
This is not the first time this sort of thing has happened to me.
When you leave paper (or worksheets) for your students to use in your absence, please leave more than you think they'll need. The sub (me) does not have access to where one can get more of anything. Thanks for your help.
Sincerely, Your SubI hate not being able to follow the lesson plan to the letter.
