Since I'm heading back to the elementary school next year to teach 4th grade I had to start stalking a bunch of fourth grade blogs and try to remember what I used in my classroom 4 years ago. Here is what I have...
I or my students absolutely need...
1. Writing folders
Each student will have a writing folder that will always be at the writing center in this...
2. Mr. Sketch Markers
For anchor charts of course! Okay, I love just sniffing them too :)
3. Yellow Paper Pad
I'm LOVING the idea of using this for drafting when writing.
I am a binder lover my friends.
There is something that makes kids feel important if they can 3 hole punch an assignment and put it into the binder. I divide the different subjects by giving the students colored paper and everything gets 3 hole punched and put in their binder. This also eliminates lost papers.
5. Math Notebooks
Wouldn't these be fun? But I usually get the boring black ones.
Anyway, using a math notebook is the way to go. AND it fits in the binder! Turn the composition book sideways and put the back flap into the folder pocket inside the binder.
