The following items make up the MOOSE notebook.
(Management Of Organizational Skills Everyday)
You can read about what each item is used for.
A clear-view 1" 3-ring binder.
Inside back - Homework; Inside front - Notes from School & Things To Turn In
A zipper pouch: To hold money or important notes (Look for pouches with clear view windows or mesh pockets...so you can see the enclosed money easily! I will also keep word wall words on index cards in the pouch this year-in another section.)
Behavior Form: Checked daily by teacher and parent.
Notebook paper: A record of correspondence between the teacher and parent(s). Date each entry and leave in the notebook the entire year.
Clear sleeve protector: To keep class schedule, lunch menu, newsletter, etc.
Plastic Pocket: Where "Super Duper Work" goes
(Once I found mine at the Dollar Tree - 2 for $1 during back to school)
This is another option: Avery Double Pocket Plastic Dividers. I got 5 tabs and the product number is 81824. (one per child) These worked great--but fold papers before putting in.
You may want to have sections for more things such as weekly poems and/or reading logs! Customize the book to fit your needs.
