Here is a list of supplies that can be brought to school for first grade:
*1 clear plastic "Sterilite" 6 Qt./5.7 L shoe box with removable lid (found at WalMart, or Target), labeled on the end with your child's name and 1F. The containers that have the purple/other color side lock handles do not fit in the desks. Please don't buy those.
*1 1-inch three ring binder with an inside pocket in the front and the back. Please get the heavy duty clear view front and back kind. Please print your child's name on the spine in permanent marker on the binder.
*1 pair of child size Fiskar scissors, labeled with your child's name or 1F
*1 box of crayons (the school will provide the standard 8 pack, no more than 24 to a pack!)
*1 soap dish with an attached lid/or plastic crayon container (please put crayons in this-if the crayons don't all fit then they have too many crayons)
*1 box of 8 washable markers or colored pencils
*No. 2 pencils (no more than 5 pencils at a time please, please rpelace on a monthly basis), a chunky pink eraser
*2 large boxes of tissues (for our classroom & special area teachers)
*1 roll of white tear-away paper towels
*1 dry erase marker per quarter-any color (put the marker into the sock)
*1 highlighter per quarter-any color
*headphones (earbuds seem to slip out of their ears frequently) wired type, not wireless
*Clorox Wipes and Hand Sanitizers are also welcome*
Please make sure each item is clearly marked with either your child's name or initials and 1F. The clear plastic shoe box and the 1 inch binders are the most important items on the list. This is the "drawer" where they will keep all of their supplies. This fits next to their books and will help keep their desk neat. Since they will have the drawer, they will not need a pencil box or case of any kind. Please don't send one to school with your child.
For the first day of school, you may pack the drawer with some of their supplies including the lid. They'll take the lid off at their desk and I'll keep the lid until the last day of school to tote their supplies home. Please make sure their name is on the box and the lid. Not all of these items need to be brought to school all at once. To make their load lighter on the first day please send in only the drawer with lid, a few supplies, and a binder. The rest of the supplies may be sent in the remaining days of the week and the following week.
I can't wait to meet all of my new first graders!
