5 Must-Have Back to School Writing Supplies for Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Class Kids

Even if you aren't prepared for your child's first day of school, you can make sure they have all the writing essentials to play, learn, and enjoy themselves in class.

Writing Supplies

For imagining stories, spelling words and ABC’s, here's what your child will need to be prepared for:

  • Composition book or notebook

  • For Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade kids, writing practice is very important. You might need a composition book or Notebook such as Kaco Jumbo Notebook or the Solo Lusso Personalle Notebook. Some teachers may require students to use notebooks with wide-ruled pages so that they can write more freely.

  • Pencils

  • Check with the teacher to ask if you may use a couple larger pencils because they are easier to handle for small hands. Stick with the usual No. 2 wooden pencils such as the DOMS Y1 Pencil Extra Dark Triangle Pencils if you don't have any other options.

  • Erasers

  • For erasing mistakes on paper, both stand-alone erasers such as the Staedtler Eraser and eraser caps (that snap onto the top of the pencil) are handy for kids in Pre-K, Kindergarten and First grade.

  • Pencil sharpener 

  • A compact, portable pencil sharpener such as the Deli Sharpener can be useful for keeping writing implements sharp so that letters on paper are clear. For increased convenience at home, try an electric one (when used under adult supervision).

  • Folders

  • To transport homework between school and home, keep loose sheets (such as student artwork or classwork) together in a paper or plastic holder. You can take a look at the Trio File Bag Snap Button.


    Let's face it, the favorite part of the back-to-school season is shopping for school supplies. Although the list provided by your school may only include some of the things, that doesn't mean you can't get a pink binder, glitter pens, and some other writing essentials! 

    So, when you go to Scooboo online shop to acquire all of your back-to-school supplies, bring that basic list with you, as well as this guide, to ensure that you obtain the best of the best stuff for your school supplies this year.
