School Supplies for 2015

School Supply Lists

If you have been in a retail store lately, chances are you have noticed all of the Back-To-School signs up all over the store. There truly are great deals out there, but for some of us we are just getting into the groove of summer break. Of course, there’s something special about getting bargains and new schools supplies. Perhaps it’s the teacher in me, but I find it fun going to get the boys their new supplies.

The tradition on my blog has been to share our school supply list each year as the boys have gotten older. It’s pretty interesting to see it change and to compare what JSL needs several years after NHL was that age. So let’s get started.

3rd Grade List

  • 5 black and white composition notebooks
  • 5 folders – red, yellow, purple, blue, and green
  • Plastic take home folder
  • 24 pencils
  • Erasers
  • Scissors
  • Markers or 24 crayons or colored pencils
  • Post-It Notes
  • Pencil Pouch
  • 5 of the 1.4 oz or larger glue sticks
  • 2 boxes of tissues
  • Ziplock sandwich bags (boys bring this – girls bring wipes)
  • 1 roll of paper towels
  • 10 Expo dry erase markers
  • Old sock that’s clean to use with the dry erase boards
  • Money for planner and Time For Kids

We will go shopping for some of these items at home. I know I had extras and things like the pouch and scissors are still in great shape.

7th Grade List


  • 1 1/2” binder
  • dividers
  • loose leaf paper
  • folder

Social Studies

  • 1 1/2” binder
  • loose leaf paper (2 packages)
  • folder
  • index cards
  • dividers
  • sheet protectors


  • 1” binder
  • dividers
  • loose leaf paper
  • green folder


  • 1” binder
  • loose leaf paper


  • 2 folders
  • 2  composition notebooks
  • box of pens
  • box of pencils
  • tissues
  • loose leaf paper
  • glue stick
  • clear tape
  • 2 high lighters
  • index cards
  • Pocket dictionary


  • Folder

In addition to this, all areas note more loose leaf paper (clearly we eat it in middle school), along with pencils, pens, and highlighters. I’m assuming there will also be some novels that we need to purchase for ELA, but none are mentioned yet.

So what items are on your school supply lists? Have you found any really great sales this year? Please share below. As I have said before, I really am a school supply geek.

    I love school supply shopping but it seems to get harder and harder every year to find what I need. I had to go to 3 different stores just to find the right plastic 3-prong folders. But it’s still a fun time to spend with the kids. :-)
