In our classroom we will use notebooks as a system of organizing home papers, homework, etc. We will call them our “BEAR Books”. This system will include a 3-ring binder notebook that I will put together for each child that will house EVERYTHING that your child and you will need to keep up with what is going on at school. No more lost notes, newsletters or calendars. No more searching the house to find paper to write me a note. Everything will be in one folder!
Why are they important? These notebooks will help the students establish good organizational skills-skills that can carry on throughout their time in school.
What will be included in the notebook?
1. A zipper pouch will be in the front of each bear book to hold lunch money or notes.
2. A homework folder. This will hold homework or important papers that need to be returned to school. There will also be another folder in there for completed work that will go home on Friday.
B.E.A.R. is an acronym for BRING EVERYTHING ALWAYS READY.
The children will bring their BEAR books home daily, and should be returned EVERYDAY!
