Box(es) of #2 Pencils
Pencils are needed everyday (pens can be used for most things, but pencils are a necessity), therefore enough to ensure the student has at least 2 every day is recommended.
Please consider a small binder to be taken home every day. I prefer these over folders to ensure papers are not lost.
Write On Dividers
These help organize the binder.
Package(s) of Loose Leaf/Filler Paper, College Ruled
I prefer college ruled, but wide ruled is acceptable. Again, please make sure your student has enough paper (2-4 sheets at least) for every day
These will be used for text marking.
We use a color-coded text marking strategy for essays. Not all students like this, but if it is helpful to do so, it will require a red, a purple, a blue, and a green pen. Highlighters in those colors (pink instead of red) can be used as well.
Colored Pencils, Box(es)
Crayons or markers can be used, as well. We will use these sometimes, not every day.
Package(s) of Kleenex® Brand Facial Tissues, Pocket Sized
We never seem to have enough tissues in class, so students carrying their own is never a bad idea!
Headphone are acceptable. I suggest buying a cheap pair for school use to prevent issues.
Dark blue or black ink only can be used instead of pencils for most assignments. If the student is more comfortable writing with a pen, for most assignments, they are free to do so.
Package(s) of Index Cards, 3" x 5"
Helpful for flash cards as well as other educational strategies.
