Tips & Tricks: What Extra Supplies Do I Need?

With the recent increase of homeschoolers due to Covid there was a frequent question being asked, what extra supplies do I need to get? Here’s my list of extra items I got for each grade we have done. Have any other questions about homeschooling just ask in the comments! Now you don’t necessarily have to have a curriculum but we use Timberdoodle

  • Paints and brushes or sponges
  • Scissors; both kid ones and adult
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Books; fun ones and educational ones
  • Stickers
  • Binder; I used one to keep all the worksheets from our workbook together since I torn them out so we could do skip around the book as needed
  • Construction paper
  • Clothes pins
  • Flash cards; numbers and letters
  • Glue sticks
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Googly eyes
  • Pompoms
  • Tape


  •  Container; I store all of our curriculum in this huge container so it’s all in one spot
  • Stickers
  • Pens and pencils; my Timberdoodle curriculum came with pencils for my daughter
  • Pencil sharpener; my curriculum came with one
  • Crayons; even though my curriculum came with them I liked the brand so much that I got the bigger assortment
  • Laminator and lamination sheets; wish I had got one sooner but I actually didn’t get one till we did kindergarten 
  • Utility tote; I use this to store the things we do everyday so I don't have to go into the container everyday and it’s great for when we travel but still need to do school
  • Sheet protectors
  • Dry erase markers and eraser

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
