The 2020-2021 school year is starting and across the country, many districts are going to online or remote learning for the first part of the year. Wondering what to get for school supplies? Our district just issued a school supply list for Kindergarten – 5th grade and I’m going to share it with you. If you’re looking for a remote or online learning school supplies list then look no further and get ready to shop.
Online Learning School Supplies List
Our school district has chosen to use the Florida Virtual School learning lesson with teachers from our district teaching the lesson plans. Our district has also chosen Elevations online schooling for older grades. This is the school supply list they sent out to us and hopefully, it will be some help to you. I’ve also included a few items that helped us out with remote learning and could be helpful for you too.
While most assignments will be done online there will be some assignments offline and printables for kids to do. If you’re looking to stay on a daily schedule, check out our COVID-19 schedule for kids!
Printer – You may need a printer to print out any documents, assignments, or printables the teacher provides.
Mouse (optional) – Using the laptop mouse pad is a pain. A mouse wasn’t on our list, but I will be ordering one for our kids to use. It makes the computer experience easier. I really love the Logitech wireless mouse. It’s what I’ve been using for years! Don’t forget the mousepad.
Headphones with Mic – Your kids will likely be doing a combination of live lessons and not live lessons. Watching videos, playing games, and needing to talk with their teacher. Headphones with a mic are a great option. These ones are affordable and have great reviews.
Coloring Supplies – Crayons, Markers, and Colored Pencils
Glue – Since kids will be working from home pick your choice of glue. Either glue or glue sticks.
Rolling cart (optional) – We put together a remote learning cart in the spring and it was a huge organizational saver. We kept laptops, workbooks, school supplies, and anything else the kids needed on the cart in a corner of the room. When school was over for the day everything went back into the cart and was nicely put away for the next day. This also helps to ensure that laptops don’t get left out and get broken.
Anything that you would recommend to make the online/remote school year easier? Let me know! I hope this online learning back to school supply guide will be helpful to you!
