Recommended Back To School Purchasing

School Supplies for Elementary or Grade-School Students
If you’re like me, you got the lists but still question the purchases.
I found some wonderful resources that helped me.

Summer is coming to an end and it’s finally time to send your little one off to school. Make it a success by getting your child everything he or she needs to start the school year off confident and prepared. We’ve also added a short list of optional items for classroom use. Many schools run out of these important supplies halfway through the school year and greatly appreciate help from parents if there’s room in the budget.

Necessities:

Backpack
Lunchbox or insulated lunch bag
School supply box
Crayons
Water-soluble glue (no glue sticks)
Safety scissors
Washable markers
Pair of gym shoes (to keep at school)
Optional:

Big box of facial tissue
Package of baby wipes
Disinfectant surface wipes
Roll of paper towels
Closable baggies
Paper plates
First and Second Grades
By the time your child reaches first and second grade, he or she is getting accustomed to making new friends, learning new things and adjusting to the school calendar. Make sure when you pick out school notebooks and backpacks, your child has a chance to choose ones that reflects his or her individual style. He or she will want to give a great first impression at the beginning of the year, and you can help by providing as many options as possible to pick the “perfect” items.

Necessities:

Backpack
Lunchbox or insulated lunch bag
School supply box
No. 2 pencils
Pink erasers
Crayons
Water-soluble glue or glue sticks
Safety scissors
Washable markers
Binders and pocket folders
Wide-rule spiral notebooks and/or notebook paper
Optional:

Box of facial tissue
Disinfectant surface wipes
Antibacterial hand soap
Roll of paper towels
Closable baggies (gallon or quart)
Third Through Fifth Grades
Your child may still be your baby, but during this time he or she is going to want to pick out products that show maturity and independence. These are your child’s last years of elementary school before the big jump to middle school. At this stage, children start learning how to use a ruler and erasable ball-point pens.

Necessities:

Backpack
Lunchbox or insulated lunch bag
Binders and pocket folders
Wide-rule spiral notebooks and/or notebook paper
Small zippered bag for pencils
Erasable ball-point pens (blue or black)
No. 2 pencils
Red felt-tip pen
Highlighters
Box of colored pencils
Crayons
Glue sticks
Pointed scissors
Ruler
Box of gallon-size closable plastic bags
3″ x 5″ index cards
Optional:

Disinfectant surface wipes
Boxes of facial tissue
Roll of paper towels
Make sure to pick up extras of items your kids might go though rapidly. Before school starts is the perfect time to stock up on underwear and socks. Some other must-haves include juice boxes, bulk snacks and brown paper bags for lunches. Buying these things in advance can make your child’s (and your) transition into the school year that much smoother.
