I have had questions about what supplies to bring? The following items would be helpful but are certainly optional:
Three ring binder- (1 1/2 inch-2 inch size) I will supply pocket folders to help organize the different subjects.
1-2 boxes of tissues- Our class usually goes through a lot of tissues throughout the year.
* I will have all of these available to use. These are items that you could buy if your child wants his/her own to use.
