One notebook – must be spiral bound, ‘one-subject’, wide ruled and containing approximately 80 pages (any color)        

One two-pocket folder

Dry Erase Markers - 1 package

Two plastic 'pencil' boxes
Approximate size of each box should be: 8 inches by 5 inches (Anything larger does not fit inside student desks.)

One box should contain:
Pencils (sharpened) - 2 packages of 24 count (Ticonderoga work the best!)
A large 'pink` eraser 
A hand-held pencil sharpener (must be able to catch shavings)
A pair of primary scissors
Glue sticks - 2 packages (Please note: First graders go through quite a few glue sticks over the course of the school year.)
Two yellow highlighters
The other plastic box should contain:
Crayons  (The Crayola Twistable Crayons are wonderful! No markers or colored pencils please. Also, nothing more than a 24 count box of crayons please. Please note: Cardboard crayon boxes often do not last long, that is why a plastic container that will hold crayons is requested.)


Parents often ask if there is anything that our classroom needs and these are some of the items that we go through rather quickly. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone were willing to donate one of the following items.

A box of Kleenex - There are usually quite a few runny noses in first grade throughout the school year.

A canister of Clorox Wipes – These can be used to clean a number of items in the classroom, including student desktops.
