Back to School Essentials for Middle School Students
Middle school means higher level learning with more homework, projects, quizzes and tests.
Because of this, students need more supplies than they did in elementary school, especially when it comes to organizing and studying. Though the basics are still needed, look into getting doubles or triples of everything. Students will be thankful when they have that extra pencil or notebook handy come note-taking time.
No. 2 pencils (wooden, mechanical or both)
Erasers (large pink or pencil cap)
Highlighters (various colors)
Notebooks for each class (if middle school does not supply)
Binders or folders for each class
Loose-leaf notebook paper for binders
A ruler with English and metric measurements
A three-hole punch
An organizer/planner to record homework and test dates
Combination locks (if they are required and not provided)
Index cards (make great flashcards for study sessions)
Scientific or graphic calculator
USB flash drive (to store work done at school or at home for projects and homework)
