How to Organize Your BinderPosted by Tara Lucius on 8/2/2013
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Your child’s ability to organize his/her time and materials is critical to success in the intermediate schools. This year we will utilize these organizational processes to prepare them for the seventh grade. Below you will find a list of supplies needed to put together a binder that will be used not only daily in our class, but can also be used in the intermediate schools. Note: liquid white-out and sharpies are excluded from this list because they are not allowed. I will provide a monthly planner. The intermediate schools should provide a weekly calendar. Your cooperation to help your child have a successful sixth grade and intermediate school experience is greatly appreciated. Please make sure that your child stays current with all supplies listed throughout the year.
Organization (in this order)
· 2 ½” binder – no writing on outside; NO ZIPPER
· Pencil pouch (clear with zipper)
· 1 - pocket folder for homework
