Supplies for IRLA

Posted on September 3, 2012. Filed under: General Information | Tags: , |

You won’t need all of your supplies on the first day (just bring something to write with), but you will need to make sure that you have your supplies ready and replenished throughout the year.

We’ll go over what you need in school (and I have examples for you in the classroom), but for those of you who want to get out there and shop the back-to-school sales, here you go!

Required supplies for IRLA class:

  • Independent reading material (this will be kept with you at all times!)
  • A section of a binder – (to keep handouts and other related papers)  You do not need a separate IRLA binder.
  • One (1) 2-pocket folder (to store loose drafts, mentor texts, and other writing materials)
  • 5 dividers with write-on tabs for:
    • Grammar
    • Word Study
    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Misc.
  • A supply of loose leaf paper (to be kept in your binder and replenished as needed)
  • 2 composition notebooks (not spiral – for reading and writing work)
  • Pencils and Blue or Black pens
  • Colored pen(s)
  • Highlighter(s)
  • Post-It Notes (light color if possible)

You will also be expected to have access to, and be able to manage, the following:

  • Infinite Campus Account (district provided)
  • Google Account (district provided)
  • NoodleTools Account (district provided)

(We will be going over all of these accounts during the first few days of school.)

Encouraged, but not required:

  • Tablet or e-reader
  • Smartphone
  • Netbook or Laptop
  • Colored pencils or markers
  • Glue stick or tape
