My Favorite School Supplies

In this post I am sharing some of my favorite school supplies. As a Robinson Curriculum family, we keep it pretty minimal. There are a few things though that make all the difference for me.

These pens are so much fun! They are erasable gel pens. Now my kids can write letters to their pen pals in nice ink and be able to erase it if they make a mistake. The ink also erases in high heat (like a blow dryer) and then reappears when put in someplace really cold, like the freezer. This makes for some fun spy games in our house!

This Abacus is a must for me for math with the little kids. When children are starting out, this is a great way to illustrate to them how 14 is different than 24 even though they contain the same numbers. Whenever we go over a number, I ask that they show me that number on this abacus.

You know me and how I love my non consumable materials! In order for the kids to comfortable use the sheet protected worksheets over and over, these fine tip Expos are a must. The regular ones are just to bulky and thick. These thin ones are low odor and fine tip so they work out great!

One of the very few things I require for math is graph paper! It makes is so much easier to read their math problems. I know they find it helpful themselves in order to line up problems correctly.

My kids sure love to draw and to have their own little space to make their own portfolios. These little sketch books are a must.  I first bought them on Amazon but then realized you can always pretty much find them in any dollar store.
