Back to school

I wish I could find a list from my son's school letting me know exactly what I need to buy, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find one. I have been looking around the internet in search of some guidelines and wanted to share some of the links I have found helpful.

Back to school time line checklist.
Find out what to do 6 weeks before school starts, 2 weeks before, and so on. Helpful way to cut down the chaos of leaving things to the last minute.

Another timeline check list but this one breaks things down for specific grades, from preschool threw high school. Also has a list of back to school books good for both kids and parents.

THIS is a great blog post/list of supplies to get not only for your child, but for the class room as well.

This printable shopping list has supplies that kindergarten-grade 3 typically need.

That's what I have for now. I'm really getting excited/nervous for the big day!

Myu husband found our son't list of school supplies at a Wal Mart in a different school zone. When i went to our W-M, they didn't have it. Weird, huh?

We are fortunate in that our school sends the supply list for the upcoming school year home with students during the last week of school the previous year. That way we have all summer to gather the supplies. Also, our supply list is very short for grades K-4, with just crayons, pencils, erasers, glue, glue sticks and tissues needed.

W-M has the best prices I've seen on supplies so far.
