Supplies Needed for ELA with Mrs. Leahy:  2 composition notebooks, 1 green folder, 1 large binder ring, at least 4 packages of Post-It notes, reading material and your pencil box/case full of goodies

FIRST COMPOSITION NOTEBOOK  –  On the front, in Sharpie (or ink), please write your first and last name, the period you have ELA and the word “Journal.”  This will be left on your class’s shelf to use during ELA.

SECOND COMPOSITION NOTEBOOK  –  On the front, in Sharpie (or ink), please write your first and last name, the period you have ELA and the phrase “Class Notes.”  This will be our interactive notebook for the year and needs to be brought to class with you every day

GREEN FOLDER  –  On the front, in Sharpie (or ink), please write your first and last name, the period you have ELA and the phrase “ELA ONLY!”  This folder will be used strictly for this class and needs to be brought to ELA every day

BINDER RINGS  –  Please leave these in your pencil case for right now.  They will end up being a tool you make to help you with your writing.

POST-ITS  –  We will use these all the time in class.  You may either keep them with you or put them in the appropriate bin in the supply station.

READING MATERIAL  – Each student will be asked to have something to read (a book, magazine, comic book, etc.) every day.
