While supply requirements will vary from school-to-school and most teachers will provide a list of essential supplies, here is a list of standard items for kids entering kindergarten: backpack, crayons, No. 2 pencils, eraser, glue sticks, tissues, hand sanitizer, blunt-tip scissors, spiral notebook or equivalent, and a lunch box, maybe even a water bottle. Also, consider extra clothing options in the event of playground wipe outs or spilled milk catastrophes. Be sure you child can tie their shoes, or else provide appropriate footwear they can handle on their own. While most teachers will provide you with a list of essentials, these items should set your child up nicely for kindergarten.
