A note regarding Case It binders: In grades 3-5th students will carry their binders from one class to another. Given we are in the cottages it is best to have a soft zip up binder to to hold papers and protect them from the elements. Some students come with very large binders which is not necessary. A one sided zip up binder is best. It will hold plastic folders, a composition book, pencils, erasers, and devices for those who carry take them to school.
1 x 3 ring heavy duty binder, zips around (Case It Binders-soft covered)
3 x Composition Book, Marble Cover, Wide ruled, 100 Sheets
3 x Plastic Folder, 2 pocket, with holes (they will go in Case it binder- one for homework, one for ELA, one for Math).
1 x Earbuds w/ Case (or in a ziplock back–with name on earbuds with sharpie)
2 x Eraser, Pink, Large
3 x Chisel Tip marker
4 x Glue Stick (minimum)
24 x Sharpened pencils
1 x Package of colored pencils, sharpened, 12/set
1 x 5” Scissors, Pointed tip
1 x Pencil case, 3 holes, 11” x 9” (many Case It binders have a built in pencil case which is perfect).
Wish list: If you are getting rid of plastic outdoor chairs/table we would love to have a sitting arrangement outside to take advantage of our “cottage living”. For our classroom store we would love some SUGAR FREE gum, peppermints (mentos), sparkling water, or baked chips.
