Title: Back to school. Junior High


1
READY, SET,M I D D L E SCHOOL!
  • GRADES 6-8
  • Junior High Edition
  • Get Educated about Middle School Supply
    Essentials

2
Elementary School VS Middle School
  • Unlike elementary school, where students are
    asked to creatively integrate material, middle
    school demands that students learn, memorize, and
    repeat back information
  • The ability for your child to do work well is
    within him/her- he/she is responsible for making
    use of his/her study habits. It is in middle
    school that your child will realize that it is
    his/her responsibility to perform well in school
  • Homework assignments are much more common in
    middle school than they are in elementary school
  • Transporting homework materials and textbooks
    back and forth is a challenge alone!
  • One of the real challenges of getting homework
    done is making sure that each of the books,
    handouts, and assignment lists are home when
    they're needed.

Middle School is T O U G H !
  • Transitioning into Junior High means buckling
    down! It is not the easiest transition for all
    children, but its your childs first major
    transition into adulthood
  • Subjects like math, science, history, and
    language arts become more challenging Make sure
    your children stay organized, keeping stress at
    bay!

4
Academic Planner
  • It is of UTMOST importance that your child
    maintain his/her academic planner academic
    planners teach students time management skills
    that will help him/her out when he/she enters
    high school.

5
Three to Five Star Notebook
  • Each subject should be reserved for a specific
    class your child is taking.
  • Encourage diligent note taking
  • Students who take good notes do a better job at
    listening during class
  • Good notes give students a better starting point
    for studying
  • Read over the note you took everyday before class

6
Colored Pens and Highlighters
  • Color-coding, hi-lighting, and underlining are
    important habits for your child to acquire when
    reading important school-related material
  • -Benefits of color-coding
  • -Improves study morale
  • -Studies show that students who study color
    coded material using color ball pens or
    highlighters score higher than students who study
    conventional black and white formats
  • -Color coded material means fewer eye fixations,
    which means that studying becomes a much more
    fluid and enjoyable process
  • -So encourage your kids to hi-light and color
    code their notes!

7
Pocket Folders
  • To transport all of your middle schoolers
    homework, creative writing brilliance, and
    everything in between!
  • Its useful to color code your childs pocket
    folders according to a specific subject
  • For instance
  • Green Earth Science Yellow Algebra Etc.

8
A Calculator
  • We cant tell you which EXACT type of calculator
    to purchase for your middle schooler, but he/she
    probably wont need a graphing calculator until
    High School
  • Safe bet Your middle schooler will do well with
    a basic intelligent calculator, like this one.

9
Graph Paper and Loose Leaf Paper
  • Middle schoolers eventually learn how to plot a
    graph in their math classes. They will be asked
    to draw graphs on their own graph paper and hand
    it as homework. Graph paper is a necessity!
  • Loose-leaf paper is essential to handing in
    assignments too! If your child doesnt want to
    rip pages of his/her notebooks, extra loose leaf
    paper will always come in handy

10
Flash Drive
  • Flash drives are a crucial item for your child to
    own. Flash drives enable students to work on the
    same project both at home and at junior high.
  • While online software systems, like Dropbox,
    provide services that are similar to that of a
    flash drive, flash drives provide extra assurance
    to your middle schooler, since it guarantees that
    all of his/her assignments will be in on time.

11
A Sturdy Backpack
In the United States, 92 of kids carry backpacks
that hold 10-22 of their body weight
  • Pick a backpack that has
  • Chest and/or hip straps and a padded back, to
    decrease stress on the back and enhance comfort
  • Has reflective material on the back, so that it
    can be seen at night
  • Has many individual pockets, to distribute weight
    evenly

12
Never Forget 2 Pencils Big Pink Erasers!
  • Standardized testing usually requires the use of
    a 2 pencil. Do NOT have your middle schooler be
    without one!

13
Hand Sanitizer
  • Nearly 22 million days of school are missed
    annually due to the common cold
  • A case control study of 6,080 schools reported
    that those who enforced classroom-dispensed
    instant hand sanitizer at specific times
    throughout the day experienced 20 fewer absences
    due to illness

14
A Reusable Water Bottle
  • Keep our pre-teens loving the planet! Especially
    during hot months, a reusable water bottle makes
    all the difference. Keep these facts in mind
  • In response to public concern, manufacturers have
    developed BPA-free reusable water bottles.
  • When you use a reusable water bottle, you help
    reduce the production of bottled beverages and
    therefore, the landfill and recycling burden of
    the bottles. 
  • Buying and using a reusable water instead of
    bottled water saves you money over the long term.
  • In fact, Greeniacs.com reports that bottled water
    can cost up to 10,000 times as much per gallon as
    tap water.
