*A tub/pencil box/shoe box for school supplies (to teach organization). 
*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)
*purple gluesticks as needed (give these to them one at a time! These also disappear quickly)
*black sharpie (very rarely)
*watercolor paints
*counters for math about 30. You can use so many different things: pennies, small lego pieces, little shopkins characters, dry beans, craft pom-pom balls, or fun seasonal erasers from the dollar section
*paper (scrap paper, computer paper, construction paper)
by the middle of the year (if our online journey is that long)
*a ruler with centimeters and inches
*a coin purse with w/8 quarters, 10 dimes, 10 nickels, 30 pennies (I know coins are hard to come by now, play or printable coins will work too)
*a deck of playing cards with the face value cards taken out (Dollar Tree has 2 sets for $1)
*dominoes (Dollar Tree has a great mini set, perfect for little hands)
