Student Materials for Spring 2019

Please have these by 1st day of class 
Most charters will cover the cost of these materials.
If you are registered for a class NOT listed below, all materials will be provided in class.
Architectural Drafting- New and Continuing Students
Grades 6-H.S.
Get ready to draw!  Each student is required to purchase a small drafting kit that includes: at least one compass, protractor, mechanical pencil, drafting square, and ruler.  Amazon has a great kit for $9.99, and I highly recommend purchasing this one.  Amazon
Please be sure to bring your tools each week to class.  Advanced students may want to invest in their own portable drafting board, but this is not required.
Excellence in Writing- Tuesdays
We will be using the same book from Fall through the Spring session
Grades 4-8
We are excited to begin this semester with you in writing. We will be using Andrew Pudewa's curriculum.  Please order the Excellence in Writing Student Writing Intensive notebook Level A.  You can order it on the IEW website as a notebook or a download. ($19/binder  $10/download)  Either is fine for the class, however, please be sure to have the stories printed and placed in a 3 ring binder for class if you order the download.  Most charters will cover the book cost. Remember to bring your notebook with you every week along with pencils, erasers, and paper.   IEW Website

This book is not required, however, it will be a good resource if you already own it.  Familiarity with IEW is recommended for this class.
