**Mead 5 Star Pocket & Prong FOLDER **(poly cover works best and lasts longer as we do use them daily and they travel to and from school each day as well!!) ** Any Pocket & Prong Folder will work just fine. *****I have currently changed all classes to a 3 section Mead 5 Star Spiral 8 1/2 X11 college ruled. **1 tab divider **Mechanical pencils- package **Red pens- package **Twistable colored pencils- package of at least 12 (these never need sharpening!!!!) **2 large Elmer's glue sticks **1 package 3x5 index cards **Package of loose leaf paper ***Optional Planner: I suggest you have one to write your homework for all classes in one place! **1 large smile, with an extra helping of effort and a side of patience for an exciting start to middle school!
