Students will need a 1" binder and a composition book for this class.
Here is how we will be utilizing those supplies to support learning:
Students will store their binders in their backpacks, and they must be brought every single day. We will use the materials in the binders daily. Our interactive textbook is consumable, so we will be utilizing the binders to organize and add to items in our textbook. Students should use the pockets of their binders for unfinished work, and parents can look at the binder with their student to take a look at work samples and to help support the completion of any homework.
Students will store their composition notebook in the classroom. We will be writing daily, oftentimes working towards a larger writing piece that will be used as an assessment grade. Composition notebooks will be used for quickwrites, to introduce and practice new structural techniques, and to organize student writing portfolios.
We will frequently use notecards as a means for formatively assessing student learning for the day. These will often be quick checks and will regularly be taken as a grade. We will take as many packs of notecards as you are willing to send!
