    This is the list that gets sent to students so they can get these supplies for each class. Since I was just hired, they have already sent out the list to my students using what the last teacher usually asked for. This includes: loose leaf paper, pencils, 3 ring binder, and dividers. The other classes, Science, Social Studies, and Math have a lot more stuff on their lists. Of course tissues and hand sanitizer are greatly appreciated in the classroom. My principal and the secretary told me if I had any other requests that they'd add it and sent it back to the students. I don't think this is necessary though.

    So, what do you usually put on your supply lists?

    Our county insists on sending out a list - much of which we don't use.

    I require the following for my 8th grade language arts students:
    • colored pencils/crayons/markers
    • highlighters
    • pencils/pens (blue or black)
    • loose leaf
    • glue stick or tape
    • 1.5 or 2 inch 3-ring binder (Used for their interactive notebook)
    • Filler paper
    • dividers (only 4 tabs needed)
    • scissors

    I ask my kids to get the largest "29 subject notebook" they can find. (And someone is always gullible enough to ask "really???"). I tell them to pick up multiples if they can find them on sale, since they can count on using 2-3 of them during the course of a year.

    They also need a folder, and something to write with.

    When we hit graphing they'll need a graph notebook and a straightedge.

    Our Geometry kids start using a calculator in class (the TI 30XA) when we hit Trig just after Christmas. They also need it for the PSATs in October. So I mention it to parents in September, but they won't use it in class for several months.

    I'm fairly flexible when it comes to how they choose to organize themselves. Binder, spiral notebook, green or purple ink or pencil, it doesn't matter to me.

    school-wide binder (I wish it wasn;t so.)
    manual pencil sharpener with cover
    pencils
    pen

    those are the basics. I supply the rest like colored pencils as needed. The kids don't have lockers. The school has them, but its a safety issue so they remain locked.

    All students need a binder with dividers, loose leaf paper, writing utensils, and a calculator. They also need to bring in some kind of book cover in order to receive their textbook. In addition:

    Chem: quadrille composition book

    Physics: 2 composition books (1 lined, 1 quadrille), folder

    Freshman: netbook

    Something to write with and something to write on. They also need a notebook of some sort that will stay in the classroom for journals. That's about it. I have everything else that they will need. The school provides tissues. I also warn them that my classroom is very cold and they will probably want to bring a sweater or hoodie or something to class.
