Beyond pencils, pens, and paper...the only thing you need for my class is a College-Ruled Composition Book. These are the black and white notebooks that DO NOT have spiral wire, but pages are instead sewn in. The pages should not be easily removed. These are available at any store with school supplies and usually cost between 50 cents and $1. Yours does not have to be black and white, many patterns and colors are available --be your own unicorn! This journal will only be used for my class and will usually stay in the classroom. If you have trouble finding one, come see me.
