If there is one thing that all teachers have in common it’s that they never seem to have enough teaching supplies! Every teacher knows just how easy it is to go through reams of paper and boxes of pens and pencils.

Whether you’re running short on pens, pencils, markers, paper, or any other teacher supplies, we know that it can be hard to keep up with all of the classroom supplies that you need to restock.  To help our teacher friends everywhere, we decided to put together this comprehensive teacher’s supply list.

Writing Utensils

One thing that no classroom can do without are plenty of writing supplies. When it comes to classroom accessories, pens, pencils, and other writing tools are pretty much a must-have.

  • Blue & Black Pens
  • Red Pens
  • Number 2 Pencils
  • Mechanical Pencils
  • Colored Pencils
  • Markers
  • Highlighters

Depending on what grade your students are in you may also need to purchase things like crayons, watercolor paints, a pencil sharpener, and plenty of erasers!

  • Printer Paper
  • Tracing Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • Construction Paper
  • Poster Board
  • Drawing Paper

You may also want to keep paper supplies like notebooks, composition books, and additional organizers available for your students. You never know when a student may be unable to purchase all of the school supplies they’ll need to succeed, so it’s a good idea to keep a few spares on hand.

  • Disinfecting Wipes
  • Disinfecting Spray
