In most elementary schools in my district, students in grades 4 - 6 are issued agenda books. They are also sometimes called day planners. Students record homework assignments and other important events in their agenda books. I show this PowerPoint at the beginning of the school year to teach my students how I would like them to use their agenda book. By having this information in a "reusable" PowerPoint form, I don't have to worry about forgetting any important information! Feel free to modify it to suit the needs of your classroom.
