Starting on Thursday, August 24th, students will be customizing and organizing their composition notebooks in class. We will be using these as our Reader's and Writer’s Notebooks. As authors and readers, students will think of their notebooks as containers for their work. Therefore, the items we choose to adorn the cover should inspire students’ best stories. Please help your child find meaningful decoration items such as photos, ticket/movie stubs, magazine cut-outs, printed images, drawn pictures, stickers etc. that relate to your child’s favorites in the following categories: people, places, things, activities, events, and goals/dreams.
If they wish, your student can bring any scrapbook paper (6 - 12X12 paper, not cardstock). It is also optional for students to bring a roll of decorative duct tape for use on their book bags and notebook. These decorative items are entirely optional, and are only meant for students to be able to customize their notebooks. Students will cover both their Readers and Writers Notebook on Thursday, August 24th.
Students have fun covering their notebooks, but also benefit from using their collages daily in workshop. We will be using packing tape to “laminate” the covers, so please do not send items you wish to have returned.
Also, if anyone would like to volunteer to help tape notebooks, that would be wonderful! Please check Remind for more information. Donations of stickers and scrapbook paper for classroom use would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support!Please send any decorative items to school with your student no later than Friday, August 25th as we will not be designing our notebooks after this date and “lamination” will begin. Thank you!
