by on August 22, 2012 12:34 PM

For elementary school students, basic school supplies are needed to complete in-school and out of school assignments.

Parents may find it beneficial to keep a stock of supplies for homework use, as things like pencils, crayons and scissors are needed on a daily basis. Make sure to pay attention to papers sent home during the first week of school, as some teachers may require specific supplies for their classrooms.



No. 2 pencils (wooden, mechanical or both)

Glue sticks

Erasers (large pink or pencil cap)

Washable markers

Crayons (make sure it contains at least the eight basic colors)

Colored pencils

Pencil Box

Two or three folders to store worksheets and homework assignments

One pair of student scissors

Ruler with English and metric measurements

Notebooks (oftentimes elementary teacher provide notebooks, so check before purchasing)

Loose-leaf notebook paper (some teachers may require this instead of notebook paper)

Construction paper

Scotch tape

Hand sanitizer
