Organization is a key component in the overall Fifth Grade experience. The school supplies listed below recommended to set your child up for success! We realize parents like to shop back to school sales so Mr. Berry and I have compiled a list of things we think are helpful to have. Note: Everything you have you will need to carry in your backpack to each class. Therefore, limit your extra supplies and keep at home. There will not be desk storage.
~ 1 set earbuds or headphones- essential!
~ 1 binder with 4-5 pocket dividers OR an accordion style folder
~ binder paper to use throughout the year; keep extra at home
~ 1 spiral bound notebook for math
~ 1 composition book for grammar
~ 1 metric ruler (centimeters & millimeters)
~ 1 protractor for geometry
~ 1 pencil pouch with pencils, a few blue ballpoint pens and erasers
~ glue sticks; keep extras at home and bring as needed
~ 1 pair scissors
~ 3 highlighters for writing: 1 green, 1 yellow & 1 pink
