It’s Back to School season, which means it’s time to go shopping for school supplies! Whether you’re a teacher or a parent, we want to save you the time and hassle of creating a school supplies shopping list. We’ve done all the hard work, and prepared downloadable lists for every grade: Kindergarten through 5th grade. All you have to do is download the list, customize it (if you want), and head to your favorite school supplies store.

If you are a teacher or room parent, the school supplies list can be among the first items you post on your classroom circle on SimplyCircle. Create your free circle today, and see how much time it saves you, and how much more help you can get from your students’ parents!

We are sharing the lists in Excel format, so that you can customize them if you want. (Or you can just use them as-is).

Here are the different ways in which you can customize the list:

  • Add, delete or edit items
  • Add, delete or edit brand name recommendations
  • Specify item quantities or other specifications (e.g., color)
  • Add notes

Without further ado, here are the school supplies lists, by grade:


First Grade

Second Grade

Third Grade

4th Grade

5th Grade

Hope this helps you get that pesky school supplies shopping business out of the way, and get your students learning!
