    Hi there,

    Our classroom budgets have been cut substantially this year. In the past, other teachers and I have supplied all the consumables needed in the classroom (pencils,etc) from our alotted budget. This year, however, we are thinking of sending a list home before school of school supplies for the children to bring, so that we can use our funds on educational materials rather than consumables.

    Would you post your list of what you require from students? This would be for an early elementary classroom.

    PS I did try to search this forum, but was having trouble with the request for some odd reason.

    My district puts out supply lists for each school-and they're all different. The school I student taught at didn't require much-I think the school bought a lot. I just looked at mine when I was at the store and it's ridiculous. There's so much stuff on it. I'll go look for it and post it in a couple minutes.

    2 large pink erasers
    2 small package pencil top erasers
    1 red pen
    1 box crayons (16 count)
    1 box colored pencils
    1 5-6 inch small metal scissors
    1 small bottle Elmer's White School Glue (8 oz.)
    2 dry erase markers
    1 small cloth
    (sock or something similar for erasing dry markers)
    1 large box of tissue (200 count)
    1 box Ziplock bags-sandwich size-girls/gallon size-boys
    1 pair of headphones for computer use
    1 small pencil sharpener with cover
    1 set Crayola markers
    4 glue sticks
    1 12 inch ruler
    1 5-tab (colored) dividers

    And then it says at the bottom that individual teachers may request additional items. I would feel bad asking for parents to pay for more than that!

    2 pk markers
    1 box kleenex
    1 pkg. glue sticks
    2 spiral notebooks

    My parish has provided me with folders, loose-leaf, and pencils for my students. I have many other items already so my supply list for this year is:

    1 box - 24 count crayons
    1 pencil box
    1 roll of paper towels
    1 large box of tissues
    (No 3 - ring binders, please, we do not have room for them.)

    I have purchased scissors for my room, I have rulers, ziplock bags from previous years, construction paper, etc. That's all I need parents to buy.

    We can only give suggestions in our district, not requirements. Here in Las Vegas we're fortunate that money is not an issue. We have plenty. Therefore, all I suggest is a backpack and a box of tissues. Everything else is supplied by the district.

    Our county went to a "county wide" supply list. That wouldn't be so bad if they had asked for a request from the teachers and then gotten the most common ones from each list. That wasn't what happened unfortunately. Here is the one for 3rd grade:

    Book bag – rolling book bags allowed
    1 16 count box of Crayons
    1 notebook - 3-ring
    Notebook paper 1 packet of 250 sheets
    No. 2 pencils
    3 pocket folders with prongs
    3 spiral-bound notebooks – 80 pages
    1 container of wet wipes (baby)*
    1 box plastic lock bags - pint Size
    1 box of tissue
    1 pair of scissors (blunt)
    2 glue sticks

    If they had asked for input I would have asked for pointed scissors, the blue glue rather than the glue sticks and gallon zip lock bags rather than the pint (since I won't have a use for these). More than one pack of paper would have been useful to have asked for also. Oh well thank goodness for the penny sales and the dollar spots.
