School Supplies

Use this school supply list as a guide in preparing for school, whether you start the year in Room 130, or move in mid-year:

What’s provided

I will provide the following supplies to each student:

  • “Leftovers” folder for work in-process
  • Whiteboard to use for warm-up and math problems
  • Paper for general use
  • A notebook for Literature Circles
  • Crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks and scissors for classroom use

What’s required

  • Several pencils (mechanical or standard)
  • Pens for daily use
  • A pencil box or bag to organize loose items
  • Dry erase markers for daily use
  • Two¬†poly envelopes (see picture) to organize science and social studies books, notes and homework
  • A folder to use to organize graded work and notes to take home

What’s recommended

  • Pens (bright colors) to use for checking papers
  • Ruler (English and metric units)
  • Washable markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Washable glue or glue stick
  • A set of crayons, colored pencils, or markers
  • An old sock or rag for a whiteboard eraser
  • A water bottle
  • A personal bottle of hand sanitizer
  • A cloth grocery bag that can be used to store books in a locker

A student can get by without having the recommended supplies, as most of these are provided for classroom use. However, students will save time if they have these supplies in their locker or pencil box, rather than having to round them up from all over the room.

Class donations

Here are some things we seem to always run low on that you could donate if you would like:

  • Washable markers or colored pencils (we start the year with these, but they seem to evaporate as the year goes on)
  • Boxes of Kleenex

What I have for purchase

  • Dry erase markers ($1)
  • Poly envelopes ($0.50)
  • Mini gel pens ($0.50)
