    I'm going to teach 6/7th grade history. What would your supply list look like. Do you do notebooks or binders?

    I teach high school, but I let students choose what they want to use. As long as they have something to write with and something to write on, we're good!

    How many hand-outs will you be giving? How much collectable homework will you be giving? Will you reqire them to keep it organized after you hand it back for use for studying for tests?

    Make your determination between binder/notebook based on the paperwork the students will be required to maintain.

    Other than that, pencils, pens, and colored pencils should be about it.

    Just keep in mind the school may have already sent out a supply list, or have one posted on their website.

    My school does this for our 6th, 7th and 8th graders. It's a good idea to check before making one of your own.

    That's pretty much what I tell them: they can write in eye liner if it makes them happy, as long as they can read their own notes.

    For stuff I read, I don't care whether it's pen or pencil, and any LEGIBLE color other than red.

    I don't care whether they use a binder, a 5 subject notebook, or a collection of Hot Wheels notebooks, as long as when I check the homework, they can find it.

    They think it's cute, then most go for blue or black ink or pencil. Though I did have one sophomore last year who did her homework each nght in a different color ink. Since I don't collect homework, it was fine with me.
