It's back to school season in all of the stores! That means it's time to start shopping for school supplies with all of the good deals out there!
I started by making a list of items that our curriculum suggested we would need and items that are commonly needed when doing school work!
When deciding what we would need I wrote down a number for how many items of each supply we would need. I ended up buying less than I was going to but figured with homeschooling for the first year I can always pick up stuff as needed for replacements.
Here are my suggestions for others that want to know what I bought and possibly what they may need when homeschooling!
Binders, Folders, Spiral Notebooks, Dividers, and Notebook paper.
I let my boys pick out a couple of fun folders as they have never been able to because in Public School items were shared and no fun type folders were allowed.
Art Paper, Construction Paper, and Printer Paper.
Pencils, Pens, Dry Erase Markers, Highlighters, Markers, Colored Pencils, Chalk and Crayons.
Play-dough, Erasers, Index Cards, Scissors, Paper Fasteners, Rulers, Liquid Glue, and Glue-sticks.
Some of the items I bought in certain colors as one of my children will be using blue items and the other using red items. They each have a supply caddy that they can move from their desk to our center table. So I figured it'd be easier for those supplies to be color coordinated so they don't get confused on who has what.
This is our basic school supply haul!
