After school last Friday 5th grade teachers headed over to TFMS to talk with the 6th grade team about the transition to middle school. We use the time to share what we have been teaching and catch the 6th grade team up on any changes we have made during the year.  In the past, 6th grade teachers have been adamant about kids have a binder with tabs, and have not accepted accordion files. One of the things I shared with the teachers was that there were quite a few 5th grade students that were very organized using the accordion file. So...happily they are allowing them next year!!  The school supply list still indicates that a binder is required, but if you have a student that is successfully using an accordion file, they are allowed to use that again next year.  Yeah!  Several of the students were very happy to hear that change.
