Here is a quick recap of the meeting just in case things got jumbled together when you got home.
*3-year thinking – don’t think you have to grasp everything the 1st year – have a long term outlook
*the front of the EEL guide has suggestions on how to “do” Essentials at home
*there are punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and homophone stuff in the back
*each student will need to have a binder for class containing:
From the Essentials guide, you will want to copy a set of the “Gear” section. (Or we talked about having the trivium tables – the trifold.) That is pages 398-431. (You don’t have to copy pages 401, 411, 423, or 429 if you don’t want to. The boxes are too small! – the kids can just write those in a spiral)
Kids also need a copy of p. 435-436.
And, IF you didn’t buy the laminated Quid et Quo trifold at the practicum, they also need a copy of 437and 439.
You also might want to make copies of the student IEW book (the writing book). Some parents like to keep the original for themselves, and make copies for their kids.
The kids will have a 3-ring Essentials binder with their mastery sheets in page protectors and their IEW book. They need notebook paper as well.
***We didn’t talk about this, but they will need a page protector with a piece of white paper or white card stock in it – and at least 1 dry-erase marker. We use these in class.
If you are copying the writing book, you will want the vocab cards in the back on card stock.
