Mrs. Rothert – 1st Grade

First Grade School Supply List


This is a tentative supply list.  These are the supplies we have used in the past.  Depending on what our guidelines are, there may be additional items needed for each child.  

Please see additional notes at the bottom.

24 #2 Ticonderoga Yellow Pencils  (These are very durable and sharpen well.)

2 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

Old sock or dry erase eraser


3 Folders (The plastic folders hold up well.)

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

Art box

6 Glue Sticks

2 boxes of tissues

1 roll of paper towels

1 composition notebook (pages should not be perforated)

Wireless mouse

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.)

Clorox Wipes

Hand Sanitizer

Recommended Supplies in case of elearning 

(to be kept at home)

Small white board

Dry erase marker



Glue Stick


Plain paper (like printer paper or white construction paper)

Handwriting paper or notebook with lines (First grade sized handwriting paper usually has 7 lines on a page.)

 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, dry erase markers and erasers.

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 consider also writing your child’s name on individual crayons and pencils, or mark them with a colorful tape.  

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.
