Suggested Materials for Mr. Gorton's Language Arts Class
* 1 Duo-tang 2 pocket folder with fasteners (plastic works better than the paper folders). This will serve as storage for current assignments and writing projects and will be taken from and brought back to class EVERY DAY.
* 1 spiral 70 page notebook. This will serve as a Writer's Notebook. This can be taken from the classroom, but must come to class EVERY DAY.
* NEED LOTS OF BLACK INK PENS. Nothing special here, just your average medium point black ink pen.
* Working pencil with operating eraser - no mechanical pencils, please.
* Pocket-sized dictionary (50,000 - 60,000 word entries) I have a class set of dictionaries, but in my view, a pocket-sized dictionary helps instill the habitual use of this important reading tool.
* A PASSION for learning, reading and writing would help! :)
Other supplies that would be appreciated as a donation to the classroom:
Sticky notes (yellow 3 in. size)
EXPO® Low-Odor Dry-Erase Markers/Chisel Point/Assorted Colors/ Pack Of 4
Kleenex
Hand sanitizer
​Clorox bleach wipes
Did I mention, BLACK INK PENS? :)
HAVE ANY BOOKS IN NEED OF A GOOD HOME?
HAVE ANY BOOKS IN NEED OF A GOOD HOME?
If you have any books (chapter books, non-fiction books, and story books) that you are no longer using and would like to see them put to good use, please consider donating them to my classroom library. One of the cornerstones of my Language Arts program is providing my students CHOICE in what they read, and having easy access to a wide range of book choices. Having a classroom library can go a long way in helping put that "just right" (interest and level) book into the hands of a student. Your donation could be the difference in making a non-reader into a life-long reader.
Thank you!
