Great Ideas

I highly recommend Barbara Cawthorne's "Instant Success" It obviously is the result of many years of experience. I found it abundant with activities I could use in my own classroom. I always liked to leave a copy handy for my own substitites.I gave it to several new teahers and they found it indespensible. Every substitute teacher should have a copy. Thank you, Barbara, for this book of great ideas.Shirley Ryder

Help for the classroom teacher for such a modest price!

Barbara Cawthorne's book is a wonderful resource of meaningful activities--which are both educational AND fun--for a substitute teacher to use when insufficient plans and materials have been left by the regular teacher. Any teacher, in fact, will love the ease of use of these copy-ready puzzles and exercises, for his/her own students--and also the many helpful hints provided by this experienced teacher!

what to do when there's nothing to do!

Anyone who has taught and certainly anyone who has Subbed in the public school knows how hard it is. The kids see a sub in the room and they instantly try to think how they can avoid learning that day..They have dozens of tricks to play on the sub and they play them. This book gives the sub some ammunition of his/her own. The practical and useful tips in this book will help to build rapport, fill in lag times, prepare the setting for learning and generally help to get the job done!! I know, I've been in the trenches for 25 years!


As an educator for nearly 40 years,dealing with all grade levels in a variety of capacities, many publications and books come my way from colleagues and through my personal investigation. I recently received Barbara Cawthorne's INSTANT SUCCESS. This booklet has something for all--from the new substiute teacher to the experienced classroom teacher. The format of a wide variety of readily available activities will save many substitute teachers--whether new to the job or front line veterans--from the anxiety of down time or the very true possibility of sketchy plans or lessons which may not be appropriate for teaching by a substitute. A classroom teacher might indeed leave the entire booklet or selected activities in the "Substitute Folder." Why spend your valuable and already too little time seeking out those extra fill-ins and appropriate substitute activities when Ms. Cawthorne has done that for you--and has done it well! I enthusiastically recommend Barbara Cawthorne's book as an inexpensive, but most effective way to provide a feeling of security to both the substitute teacher and the classroom teacher --and very appropriate activities for the kids in the class. So--when you are filling your totebag or briefcase for the start of a new school year--please do save a little room for your INSTANT SUCCESS!

Instant Success

A must for all new subs! This book gives you a wonderful resource for all levels K-8! I carry it with me every time I substitute teach.
