The Supply List for 2nd Grade with annotation by me
1 Pk. Crayola Crayons (Box of 24) OK, that’s reasonable enough.
1-Bottle of Elmer’s White Glue 7.625 fl. Ounces Kind of specific about the brand/size but I bet that’s standard
1-Pink Pearl Eraser OK
1 Pair of Scissors, 5", pointed tip Hmmm, I think ours are 4.75” long with a round tip...for safety
2-Zippered FABRIC School Pouches that will hold supplies, 3 hole with grommets 10"x 6" where in the h-e-double hockey sticks am I supposed to find this? Is it possible they expect I will be making this myself from fabric and notions...those things are called notions, aren't they? or are they dry goods? Oh, heavens.
6-2 pocket solid color (no pictures) folders (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue, 1 green, 1 black & 1 purple (Be sure pockets are on the bottom of the folder (horizontal), not the sides & with the 3-holes punched on spine to store in a binder, i.e. Mead) Alrighty…this ought to be cheaper than Transformers folders...I like the addition of a black folder. Black, like my heart after reading this list.
1 Yellow highlighter OK, but you better speficy whether you want fine tip or broad tip because chances are I will buy the WRONG one.
1 Box of 12 Erasable Colored Pencils Erasable?!?!?! Do they make such a thing?
1 Ruler, 12” Plastic, inch & cm. Metric is the wave of the future, I hear.
1 dozen #2 pencils I will only buy them in yellow and they must be Ticonderoga brand. Ha.
1 box brand baggies, Sandwich size I bet they don’t even want baggies. I bet they mean Ziploc (and not just regular zippered bags but name brand because every other supply list for the entire school is for Ziploc brand zippered bags)
1 box brand baggies, Gallon size (for headphones) Seriously, he has one pair of ears and will be issued one pair of headphones and he needs a whole box of gallon size bags
2 Large Boxes of Kleenex Tissues Kleenex?!?! We’re a Puffs family or Kirkland or Target.
1 Container (small 25) disinfecting wipes, Clorox or any other brand Okee Dokee.
2-1" inch 3-ring binders (with clear front insert) white colored I think I can find that in the supply closet at work filled with a printed PowerPoint presentation that someone thought was much more important and useful that it actually was. I pity the reprographics intern who had to collate that worthless presentation that I will now be chucking.
Please limit supplies to those listed above. Also, please check quarterly to see if any supplies need to be replenished. How & when am I supposed to check this? I mean, I am at work when the school building is unlocked. Thanks.
