Class Supply Lists for the Beginning of 2021/2022

  • A tub/pencil box/shoe box for school supplies (to teach organization). 
  • Scissors 
  • Pencils (I'd recommend only giving them 4 sharpened, one for every day of the week, then sharpening them before the week starts. Pencils disappear quickly)

  • crayons/markers
  • black sharpie (very rarely)

by the middle of the year:
  • a ruler with centimeters and inches
