You should have … 100 page spiral bound notebook Colored pencils (at least 5) Liquid glue OR tape Scissors
Why not stick glue? – Because it dries out faster than liquid glue and your pages can fall out! Can I use markers? - No; markers can bleed through the paper and cause your notebook to look sloppy. Only use markers on pages we paste into our notebook What if I forget? – I have emergency supplies that you can borrow. How often will I need these supplies? – EVERYDAY !
