So I have an hour of planning time every day while my students are in specials. However, today totally threw me off when a substitute got confused, infiltrated my specials classes before me, and desperately begged to be able to take the time to give herself a breather. I sympathized and let her have the hour, but it left me throwing together an activity for my ids at literally 5 minutes after I should have had one completely planned. I managed! What do you do when you have those last-minute must-throw-something-together?
