Mrs. Rothert – 1st Grade

First Grade School Supply List


Please see additional notes at the bottom.

36 #2 Ticonderoga Yellow Pencils  (These are very durable and sharpen well.)

3 boxes of crayons (24 count box, please no twistables)

Book bag (Make sure it is big enough to put a folder and a text book inside.)

3 Black dry erase markers


3 Folders (The plastic folders hold up well.)

3 Erasers (pink or white rectangular- These work the best.)

Art box

6 Glue Sticks

3 boxes of tissues

1 box of plastic zip top sandwich sized bags

1 large posterboard (any color)

1 composition notebook (pages should not be perforated)

Headphones  (Previous students seemed to prefer over the ear headphones instead of ear buds.  Please have your child try them before sending them to school.)

Please note that it will be necessary to replace some of these items during the school year.  You may want to take advantage of back to school sales and buy extras of the following items: pencils, crayons, folders, glue sticks and erasers.

Pencils, glue sticks, erasers and dry erase markers will be collected at the start of the year and passed out as extras are needed. 

Students will need the following supplies at home to complete homework assignments:  crayons, pencils, erasers, and a ruler.

Please mark your child’s supplies with his/her name or initials.  Please do not mark the pencils, glue sticks, erasers, or dry erase markers. 

A note about crayons:  Some of the brands don’t use traditional color names on the crayons.  It might say “sunburst” instead of “orange.”  Please try to choose crayons that use traditional names.  The Crayola brand has worked the best in the past.

Supplies may be dropped off in the classroom during Work Nights or Back to School Meetings.  Please make sure all of your child’s supplies are in a bag with his/her name on the outside of the bag. 

We also rely on your generous donations to supply a few items for the whole class to use.  We are in need of the following items this year: zip top bags (quart and gallon size), hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes.  Any donations are appreciated.

 *Wish List Items*

Bean Bags or large pillows for comfy reading spots

Discman or other portable CD players (even if they need to be plugged into the wall)
