When it comes to homeschooling preschoolers and kindergartners, there are a lot of cool things on the market. It’s easy to think you need it all, but of course you don’t! I thought it would be fun to share with you my must-have school supplies for homeschooling preschool and kindergarten. These are the items I always keep on in our home to make learning fun!
Must-Have School Supplies for Homeschooling Preschool and Kindergarten
I use these items for homeschooling kindergarten nearly everyday!
I had to start my list with a laminator. I print several things for my younger children and I like to laminate them so they can be used over and over again!
We love to use counting bears and cups to work on colors, counting, and sorting!
Dry Erase Pockets/Markers
Dry erase pockets are great for worksheets that you’d rather not laminate. They are awesome for handwriting practice so you can continue using the same sheets over and over.
Of course, we can’t pass up the playdough. My kids love using playdough for all sorts of activities. I also have a box full of playdough tools for them to use!
Do-A-Dot markers are great for so many activities, plus they are fun to use!
We use pocket charts for all sorts of activities such as sorting ABC cards to retelling stories! I really like the tabletop pocket charts the best.
When your child is ready to learn to write, I suggest using a journal with primary lines. Plus, we really like these pencils for beginner writers, too.
You will need lots of crayons! I buy several packs at the beginning of the year and keep them stashed until a new box is needed.
Glue sticks are much easier to use than school glue, although you could buy both.
You’ll also need a good pair of scissors for your child.
You will go through LOTS of construction paper!
I use a craft kit for so many things. It includes googly eyes, feathers, pipe cleaners, jewels, and more.
Of course you need some ABC flashcards to play games! Grab my ABC picture word cards for free!
I like to use shape sorters to teach my children the names of the shapes, plus they are fun to play with.
Probably the most important thing to have in your house is a library of books. Preschoolers and kindergartners LOVE stories! I have several preschool book lists if you need ideas!
You also need to check out our living books list for kindergarten. These are our top picks for kindergartners!
