Supply List

Hi, everyone!  Today I am just stopping by to post our 1st grade team supply list.  We decide as a grade level what we'd like to put on our supply list.  A few people had asked me what is on it, so I figured why not do a blog post about it!?

Over the years, we have become more brand specific on some things...the reason being is that if you buy quality products, they will last.  I can't tell you how many off-brand dry erase markers have gone dry after a few uses or how many pencils I have thrown away because they REFUSE to sharpen even with the best pencil sharpener!  I know it's not always ideal to ask for name-brand supplies, but some things need to be name brand in my opinion.

Here are the things we ask for in first grade:

  • 2 boxes Crayola crayons
  • 8 Elmer's glue sticks
  • 1 Spacemaker supply box
  • 3 packs of #2 Ticonderoga pencils
  • 2 pocket folders
  • 1 pair kid scissors
  • 1 package white copy paper {school requests this from every child}
  • 1 box Crayola fat markers
  • 2 pink erasers
  • 4 EXPO dry erase markers
  • 1 tub Clorox wipes
  • Boys: 1 box Kleenex
  • Girls: 1 box Gallon bags
  • 1 pair of headphones 

What things do you ask for?  Have a great day!

Hi Megan,
I ask for some of the same things you have on your list. This is the first year I've been specific about brand names on some items. I love those Ticonderoga pencils, don't you? Two on the list I'm going to start asking for: copy paper and headphones. Thanks for the list!

Ours is also very similar. We also ask for pencil cap erasers, a highlighter and a pack of post it notes to help with close reading activities I wish we could ask for brand names. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for as the cheaper brands just don't hold up.
