Student Supplied Materials
Pencils - Students may leave their pencil in the classroom or bring it with them every day.
Ear Buds or Headphones - Students will use earbuds or headphones when they choose to read audio books (books on CDs). There is a limited supply of earbuds in the classroom, so students will need to supply their own. Students may leave their earbuds/headphones in school.
Post-It Notes - Students will use these sticky notes to create reading goals and track their independent reading.
Pastel Colored Loose Leaf Filler Paper - In order to help students create organizational skills for their writing binder, I am requesting blue, yellor, or pink pastel colored filler paper to use in school for writing purposes.
Tennis Balls - In an attempt to cover the feet of all the classroom chairs for the first time, I ask that students donate 4 tennis balls. This will make it easier for students to to pull out and slide heavy chairs on the carpet.
