Materials needed for class:
One notebook/binder/folder with at least 2 pocket dividers for storing material

Come to class prepared to work with pen, pencil, paper, folder and materials. Remember to bring vocabulary lists, your workbook and study sheets.
Raise your hand when you want to speak and listen carefully when others are trying to speak.
Be respectful to your teacher, your classmates and yourself! Everyone makes mistakes…it’s OK to mispronounce a word! Please don’t laugh or mock your peers if they make an error. Be courteous and kind to one another, especially during group and paired activities.
