5th Grade Supply List
Book Bag, NO ROLLING
3 subject notebook for Science and SS
1- 1in binders for ELA
NOTE: I know the main 5th grade list says 2- 1 in binders, but I have a brand new class set of 22 1 in binders, so I figured I'd share them with my class and save parents some cash. We'll use them as our math notebooks.

4 expo markers
Colored pencils and individual pencil sharpener
1 pk multiple color highlighters
Wooden or mechanical (lead for mechanical pencils)
Plastic (hard case) pencil box medium

*earbuds or headphones if you have some at home-- I have some headphones in class and I also have a few new earbuds I can distribute.
*water bottle with a no spill top- students are allowed to have a water bottle in class. We have water refill stations available for them.
NOTE: No need to buy Mr. Clean erasers, even though they're on the main list. I have plenty to share with the class.
Wish List: Clorox Wipes, baby wipes, Band-aids (knee size),snack or sandwich size Ziploc baggies, clear sheet protectors, envelopes (white or manila)
My Homework Philosophy- If a child works hard at school and completes their assignments, then their time at home should be just that...time at home. All I ask is that students spend at least 30 minutes Monday through Thursday reading their assigned reading book and have parents to initial their reading log in the far right column. I will check reading logs Tuesday - Friday mornings. I will handle signing in all AR books so I can be sure your child is reading at their appropriate reading level.
*The Exception to My Homework Philosophy: If a student is unable to complete an assignment in class and there will not be time the following day, I will ask that the assignment be completed that evening for homework. There will be a place in their Nightly Folders for this work to be found.
We also learn prefixes and suffixes each week. Students will be bringing a list of words home each week to review for a few minutes each night to prepare for the test at the end of the week.
Also, toward the end of the year, light homework may come home more frequently in order to prepare for End of Grade Tests.
