When it comes to back to school, we know the kids need supplies. But in order for a super smooth year for everyone, this Teacher’s Favorite Things printable will be the key to a successful year for all!
Whether you send your kid to public, private or home school like we do, you are going to need school supplies. Every year it seems as though, the lists get longer. You find yourself wondering how in the world these kids go through so many school supplies. I can tell you first hand, since we homeschool, that they really do go through all those school supplies. Especially things like pencils, glue, and paper. Kids loose pencils. They doodle on the paper. And the glue? Well, sometimes it seems as though they eat the glue when my back is turned.
I remember the first year we dove into homeschooling, we thought we would save money. One of the ways we did that was buying school supplies that were generic brands or from dollar type stores. We quickly learned that there’s a reason the products were cheaper. They didn’t work as well.
Truth be told (and I’m not just saying this), but the saying “you get what you pay for” when it comes to school supplies is 100% true. Since then, going into our fourth year of homeschooling, we know now that quality products are where it’s at.
This isn’t just for homeschool though. Teachers around the globe will confirm that quality products are more dependable. We surveyed some of our teacher friends and they all agreed that you will get more money for your supplies if you buy quality brands. Sometimes though, unless we are in the classroom, we don’t understand why some things are on the list.
I remember seeing a friend’s list and I was like why does your kid need paper towels and tissues. They explained that in smaller grade classrooms, they have sinks and need paper towels for the kids to dry their hands. The school supplied towels are harsh and especially in the winter can really hurt the little hands.
Also, kids are germ-y and therefore tissues, ones that are durable and soft, are a must.
The best Paper Goods
It was a no brainer that those supplies should be Kleenex® and Viva®. I remember the first time I used a Viva paper towel. It was like sorcery. It was so soft! I know that when it comes to kids these are the best, especially in the harsher winter months of school. Whether the teacher needs to wipe tears or a runny nose, you know that your little has the softest option available.
Viva® Towels Signature Cloth not only deep clean quickly and more efficiently, but it’s great for wiping off dirty knees or cleaning desk. There are 2X more durable which means your kid’s teacher needs to use less and you’ll have to send in less later in the year. Viva helps to make a cleaner environment so you can worry less while your littles are away. And even if you homeschool, you can rest assured that all these things benefit your own classroom too!
You can grab these products and all your school supplies at your local Target! There’s deals coming your way too! Offers will be good for both in store and Target.com. Check back for great deals on household paper at Target from July 29-August 4th and August 11-17th.
Teacher’s Favorite Things – The School Supply That You Must Have!
You get a supply list and you know that you need all of those things. However, if you really want a terrific year, you need one more thing! You need a questionnaire of your kids’ teachers favorite things!
This free printable will really make a difference in your year and the year the teacher has. No more wondering if the gifts you buy are wanted or going to be thrown away (what a waste of money!).
Instead, you know the exact things that your kids’ teachers want and are able to buy accordingly. Natural favorite things like candy and drinks, but also where they like to eat and shop so that if you want to buy giftcards you can to places they will actually shop at.
What’s even better is that there are even places for them to write in what they always run out of or things that they need in their classroom. If you even feel compelled to do more or see a sale, you are able to know that you can pick up these things and it will be very appreciated by the teacher.
It’s really a great way to make sure that the year goes great!
