I spoke with my principal today and he said that each teacher can decide what to put on their supply lists. I got to see my classroom and talk to the custodian and my school does provide some basic supplies -- lined paper, stapler, paperclips, whiteboard markers etc but the custodian said that supplies are hard to get at the end of the year + they seem to be pretty stingy with them! I also have a supply closet filled with different types of math manipulatives, student whiteboards, etc. I teach in a low income school so I am trying to figure out if this supply list is reasonable. This is only for one class (math) and I assume that kids would need supplies for the rest of their classes. My principal also said that if a child is having trouble getting supplies, he will provide them. -One binder (one inch) -Lined paper -One notebook -Pencils and pens -Markers or colored pencils -Two glue sticks -Two whiteboard markers Does this list seem reasonable for a 6th grade math class? Also, it is ok for teachers to ask for things like Kleenex and Clorox wipes? My school does not provide them.
