Before starting a class, ensure that your students have the necessary materials:

  • A notebook for taking notes during the classes.
  • A Duotang to organize and store important papers, such as formulas and divisibility rules.

To assist students with retention, encourage them to write down vital information, such as French verbs like "Etre" and "Avoir" and mathematical formulas. You can also upload crucial pages to Google Classroom for easy access:

  1. Upload essential pages that you want them to memorize on Google Classroom so parents can print and add them to the Duotang.
  2. Ask the student to use the notebook to record the date and keep the Duotang handy, which will contain all the important notes you've uploaded to Google Classroom.
  3. Include essential notes such as multiplication tables, divisibility rules, and other important rules.

This approach ensures that students have the tools and resources they need for effective learning and retention.
