Halo. So I've been subbing for a month now, loving it really Anyhow, I had a question- and I will probably ask this in a teachers board as well, but wanted to get your opinions from this side of the room. Later this month I will be subbing for 2 days in a row for a teacher. This will be the first time I'm in a room longer than a day. This is also the first time that I've had 2 weeks notice on a job haha- So often I get into a room and each class has different positive reinforcement techniques (candy, stickers, prize buckets, etc). Also, focus phrases are used in some classes, but not others (123 eyes on me, red light, class class, etc). Would it be weird, in your opinion, to email the teacher asking things like : - Do you have any children with nut allergies in your room? (so if I want to offer chocolate as a candy option) - Do you have a particular candy that you use (I've seen mini-starburst, sixlets, skittles, and m&m's) - Does your class have specific "focus" phrases? (123 eyes on me, class class, red light) - Is there anything else you'd like me to know so that I can make my time in your classroom as close to a regular day as possible? I just want to go in better prepared than I would for a single day job.
