I know that we all like to buy our supplies when we can get the items during the back to school sales. Please note, this is an optional list of things that will be used and shared during our year of being on Team Tulley - 3rd grade (this is not an all third grade supply list).
Thank you for bringing in for your student the supplies that you can. You will also receive this in a letter nearing the start of the school year once class lists have been assigned.
Our classroom has tables as there is a great deal of research to support that third grade students still benefit a great deal from collaboration and working together. Students will share many supplies that are sent in, in the spirit of team-work and collaboration. No pencil boxes please. Each child will have their own space in a locker that they will share in the event that they need to have something "special" in there for the occasional use.
