Ms. Still's Core Class

CORE UPDATE: I introduced a note-taking, note-making strategy using Cornell Notes and have added more information on how students can use this strategy on my Social Studies page.

Here's some good go-to supplies to have for the sixth grade:

  • Lined binder paper
  • Large 3-ring binder with dividers for ALL subjects
  • One folder per subject for homework - or other organization system.
  • Colored Pencils (better than highlighters!), but highlighters are good additional items.
  • Erasers, scissors, and glue sticks
  • Supplies pouch
  • EAR BUDS or headset***

***Students are encouraged to bring earbuds or headphones to use when working on chrome books in our classroom. We now have a class set of headphones, but students can use their own if they prefer.

(A great way to stay informed of upcoming school and class events is to join Class Dojo for 2018-2019 that will be set up soon after I have my class roster)


Pencils (ongoing request)

.7 mm Lead (for mechanical pencils)
