What to buy for Kindergarten??
July 20, 2013 at 9:24 AM

My son starts Kindergarten the first week in September... I was informed we wouldn't find out his schedule or any info until about a week or so before school starts.  A little annoying but there's nothing I can do about that.

I have NO idea what to expect he will need for school.  This is my oldest baby, so the first time I'm doing this lol :)  What are some things I should stock up on beforehand?  I want to start shopping now to get in on the good sales.  I'm sure by the time I get his info all the stores will already be in Christmas mode lol!

I'm planning on grabbing 


What am I missing? I can't imagine he will need a TON for Kindergarten, but would love some input from other moms who have been through this before.  I'm sure there's something I'm not thinking of :) Thanks mamas!!! <3

    My dd's school doesn't ask for folders. They do ask for spiral notebooks. Don't forget scissors.

    Go look at the previous school lists before you buy anything to give you an idea. Around here K and 1st give the teach a $25 check for communal supplies. They don't get an actual list until 2nd. But you should still need a backpack.

    All mine needed were a standard sized backpack, lunchpail (if you pack lunch) and a napmat. Some kleenex and antibacterial wipes but those were voluntary donation.

    Is it going to be communal supplies? Either way colored pencils, markers, scissors, eraser, Kleenex are some things that were on my sons last year.

    that's actually 1 thing he won't need.. PA still does 1/2 day kindergarten so he either eats lunch after AM kindergarten or before PM kindergarten.
