This is what I have in my bag. I have a calculator for math, a binder with sections for all my classes, I have a pencil case with pens and one rubber. I also have a Greek myth book for my English class which we have just started to read. I have one more reading book which is the second book in the Hunger Games series. There has been made movies based on all the books in that series and the new film based on the third book is coming on the cinema next Thursday, and I am so exited. I also have an iPad that every 6th graders get and earplugs to listed to music in Study Hall. The last thing is the Grammar book which we also have in the subject English.

Aisha, 8th Grade
Besides all of the school materials, such as binders and notebooks, I always carry several additional things with me. One of these things is a hand sanitizer, which I hardly ever use, but prefer to keep just in case. I often have some extra cash in case of a critical situation, headphones, a hair tie, and my phone. I also like to carry a book with me. And if I have time during study halls and free periods, I usually read it. In addition, I have a bracelet, presented by my Dad as a gift from Germany, which I consider as a talisman or a charm, so I always carry it with me. I keep an additional hair tie for PE and a lip balm just in case. All other objects in the picture are the necessary supplies for my everyday school life.

My favorite subject is music because I love to play flute and sing. So I love that you relax in music lesson because you play a instrument and the music is nice to hear. I wished that I didn’t have to carry a lot of books because it makes it heavier. I use my pencil case a lot.

Julia de Jongh, 8th Grade, 12.6 pounds
I have a red bookbag from Converse. I usually don’t bring a lot to school because I have to walk to school and I don’t want to carry a heavy bookbag all the way to school. I have two binders, a calculator, a book, my wallet, and my laptop in my bag. I don’t like carrying my two binders because they are quite heavy and they take up a lot of room inside my bag. I use my laptop a lot because for almost all of the subject we need our laptop. My favorite subject in school is Art because you can express yourself or things without words. I also really like PE because you can try new sports.
