Group Crates Under Ms. Rossi’s computer in blue crates crayons, colored pencils, dictionary, scissors, glue sticks
Class Bins On the back windowsill there are bins for each class. When told to hand in work, find the bin that corresponds with your class period. For example, if you have Social Studies Period 2, look for the bin that says “Period 2”
Planner Write all homework and assignments in your Tenafly Middle School planner under the Social Studies column.
What to do when you get into class? There will be a message on the board or TV with directions on what you are supposed to do. Example: Write in your notebook 3 reasons why we study Social Studies in school.
