The Big List of Back-to-HomeSchool Supplies

This year our local schools seemed to go back pretty early in early and mid August. I am wondering what happened to the old days when schools would start after Labor Day? The summer just keeps feeling shorter and shorter.

But I know that probably works out for many of you--to have your children in school early or when the heat is on and you can't bare to hit the outdoors and prefer to hit the books instead!

I just finished getting all of my school supplies together and curriculum has already ready arrived. And since everything is so fresh in my mind I thought I would write out a quick supply list in case anyone still needed one or forgot anything.

(Don't forget we also have some helpful homeschool ideas on our Homeschool Pinterest Boards!)

Here are some things that you will need for a year of back to school or might just want just in case:

Ticonderoga pencils (they are the best, no breaking and constant sharpening)

black pens

red pens


colored pencils

dry eraser board

black chalkboard


loose leaf paper

glue or glue sticks


pencil boxes

index cards and flashcards



back packs

lunch box


laminator & sheets







dry eraser markers

colored markers


ear phones (for online classes)

construction paper

paints and paint brushes

paint pad


certificates & awards


pencil sharpener

printer paper

printer ink


sticky notes

composition notebook


musical instruments

toys to keep toddlers busy

Don't forget that if you have Amazon Prime you can get two day FREE shipping!

That's all I can think of right now--can you think of anything I missed?

Add it in the comments below and I will try to add it to this list!

I am glad you mentioned the laminator, because I need to buy for sheets for it!
