In our classroom, students use the supplies that they bring to school. Supplies that will be used daily will be kept in their desk and supplies that are used occasionally will be kept in their cubby. There are one or two supplies that will be kept in a bin and need to be labled with the student's name.
Listed below is the district's supply list for first grade. I have included my preference (in italics), but that is not required, simply what I think works best. Special items such as glitter glue, themed pencils, etc are best left at home for use on homework.
It is recommended for all grade levels: backpack, facial tissue, hand sanitizer, pencil box,AA batteries
#2 pencils, sharpened (24 Ticonderoga)
Water color paints (8 color Prang or Crayola) Needs labeled
Crayons (3 boxes of 24, Crayola)
Scissors (Fiskar - without scissor lid - it just gets lost or played with)
Ear buds or headphones, whichever your child is more comortable wearing
**Not needed in my classroom (I either have some already or don't need them).
I will have additional supplies needed for the classroom on star wishes by the classroom door. Examples of some of those wishes are: Stickers, Galon-size baggies, Quart-size baggies, Disenfecting wipes, and Baby wipes.
