~ The Sixth Grade Transition
While sixth grade is quite a change from elementary school, I hope you will
all remember it as a learning experience that was fun. After speaking to
several of my sixth grade students from this past year, I compiled a list of
things that they needed for the year. Having these items ahead of time will
make the sixth grade transition a bit smoother.
The following is a list of supplies that can be purchased over the summer.
The best time to buy them would be during all those “Back to School” sales
that will be here before you know it!
• 1” – 2” BINDERS (At least five…they get beat up during the year and
need to be replaced, but you will need several to
start off the year.)
• BOOK COVERS (Preferably paper ones as book socks and contact paper
tend to damage the books.)
The above list will make life easier for you. Some other suggestions might
be notebooks , folders, and some index cards. Oh, by the way, did I mention
Learning is not a spectator sport.
All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal
opportunity to develop our talent.
