If you have looked at your Sunday paper these days, it is filled with ads for back to school like this:
Although a lot of places around the country head back this month, those of us in New York (and some other locations) are in a holding pattern until Labor Day. When NHL finished third grade at the end of June, he came home with his report card, new teacher for next year, and a supply list. I wrote about his big list earlier.
JSL has been itching to get some items for kindergarten. This list had not been sent home yet, but the other day I found it online. Something must have told me to look because there it was waiting for us.
So what does a kindergarten list look like for us? Here it is:
- A pack of primary pencils
- A large book bag or backpack
- 5 glue sticks
- 1/2” or 1” plain black binder
- One package large dry erase markers (multi-color)
- A 100-pack of pocket protectors
- 1 Primary Journal (black and white – can be purchased in the Art Section)
- 1 bottle of liquid glue
- 3 plastic pocket folders (pockets at the bottom): 1 blue, 1 red, 1 orange
The list welcomes parents and students to Kindergarten and mentions that the list of supplies will be needed and shared throughout the school year. At the end, it starts that a sign-up sheet for parents to bring in additional items like tissues, paper towels, baby wipes, and other community items may be needed. The list seems a lot different than the one that NHL had for kindergarten in another school. I remember we had to buy him many more glue sticks, crayons, and scissors. I suppose they must have sets for the classroom.
So if you did not chime in earlier, what is on your back-to-school supply list this year?
