First-grader’s school starter kit. What should it include?

The beginning of the school year is a big deal not only for the debuting students, but also for their parents. After all, there is so much to take care of! And one of those things is a school starter kit. What should be included on the shopping list? We have checked it for you!

The list of necessary items – what should you remember about?

To start with, you should find out what are the requirements of the school your child attends, especially if you have a first-grader. Many institutions have their own guidelines in place as regards a school starter kit. Although the list may differ between schools, the commonly required items include:
  • notebooks: 16-page, ruled, and 16-page, graph paper
  • grade book
  • two pencils (HB or 2B, could be fatter, triangular)
  • pencil eraser
  • sharpener with a casing
  • glue stick
  • colored pencils and crayons
  • poster paints and brushes
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • felt-tip pens
  • drawing block
  • color paper pad
  • elastic band folder
If your child is going to school for the first time this year and is only starting to write, it’s worth considering a special pencil that facilitates writing the first letters. Such models have special holders for easier grip.

Right after books, it is necessary to buy a backpack. Ever more parents choose to buy a rolling version. All that is aimed at relieving the youngest kids of heavy backpacks. It's worth noting that some backpacks are available already with a fully supplied pencil case.

Clothes and shoes for the new school year

Of course, books and notebooks are not the end of the shopping list. A child will face also other challenges during the school year, PE for starters. Learn the school’s requirements before you buy a sports outfit. Many schools require navy blue shorts and a white T-shirt. If you have a first-grader, a formal outfit will also be useful – your child can wear it not only for the school year opening ceremony, but also for other special events.
The list of necessary items is long and the costs of a school starter kit can be shocking, but there are things, such as a backpack or shoes, which you shouldn’t try to save money on. Still, it is worth comparing the prices at different online stores with school supplies, as they could differ even by several dozen zlotys in relation to one product.
