Being prepared is one of the keys to getting a good education. Every teacher – whether your attend public or private school or you are homeschooled –  has different requirements and expectations for their students. There are some basics that you should always have during your career as a student whether you are in elementary school, high school, college, or are homeschooled.

Items for Home or your Desk

  • tape dispenser
  • stapler
  • three hole punch
  • extra 3-ring binder
  • glue 
  • glue sticks
  • crayons, colored pencils, markers 
  • scissors 
  • pencil sharpener 
  • index cards 

Items to Carry or Keep Close at Hand

Different Note-taking Materials 

3-Ringer Binder

These are fantastic for using with a course with multiple handouts that you need to keep organized by unit or chapter.

One Subject Notebook

This type of notebook is good for those courses where most of the work will be completed in one place.

Three or Five Subject Notebook

This type of notebook is good for those courses where you will be taking a lot of notes or need to divide up individual courses into one notebook.

Tablet or Laptop

Using an electric device is great because you can organize notes, digital handouts, websites, and other materials provided immediately.

What are your favorite school supplies? Do you find you retain information better when you use a particular note-taking method?
