So I smashed my hand pretty good last week and typing is a bit tortuous so I'll keep this brief. Normally, however, I like to post just about every significant event that happens in class. Since you've checked in already, it might be a good idea to take a look at some of the old postings. Keep in mind, however, that this class tends to evolve each year depending on circumstances. In three years at King Middle School, however, I've always maintained a daily website, so have a look at it if you're interested. 
What else? This class is astonishingly easy if you do the work and reach out for help. If you have questions about anything, I always answer emails. So if you have any questions about the class feel free to send an email. Here's what you will need:
MLK Student Planner

Independent reading book

Dedicated Spiral Notebook (just for this class) college ruled (25 cents at Target)

3 Pens

2 Mechanical Pencils

4 Highlighters Pink/Blue/Orange/Yellow



Other details:


The class is basically paperless. We use google classroom for most of our writing and sometimes we'll take notes in our notebooks, but I don't pass out a lot of papers. The important documents are always available online. 


We read for 18 minutes every day. If you have a grade-level book you want to bring in, please do so on the first day. If you have a smartphone or kindle, you can bring that as well. I also have a classroom library that is well-stocked and I'm happy to check out books to students (we'll go over check-out procedures on the first or second day).
