The first time I came to this realization, I was long-term subbing in a first grade classroom and student after student would tell me they didn't have a ___ anymore. I started writing notes to parents in students' folders letting them know what was needed, but that quickly became tedious. So I created a simple check-off form I could print and copy. As students were working, I polled them about what supplies they needed and checked off the form to send home. It was so much easier! So, whether you are long-term subbing or teaching full-time, download this Supplies Needed Form for free and make your life a little easier.
