Please make sure you bring a notebook, pencil, and pen to each class.  I will let you know which, if any, text you will need for the week.  You should also always have your writing folder and the writing tip pages I will supply.  A thesaurus is a great writing tool as well as a rhyming dictionary.  Although these are not requirements, they can be very helpful additions to your writing toolbox.  You will also need a novel of your choosing for independent reading.
