Top Ten Most Needed School Supplies


The Top Ten

1 Pencil

When do you not use a pencil in school? That's so true

Pencils are critical for school. Like, I literally had a pack of about 30 pencils, I let people borrow them, and 2 weeks later, there all gone. Never making that mistake again!

You always end up borrowing pencils and it's better to just keep your own

I swear nobody in my classroom never has a pencil and it kills me like come on and the teacher never wants to give you whon - Lilant

2 Brains

Brain can't be a school supply, it's a human organ! - Nakul123

What's a brain? - MrZebra24

If you did not have brains then you would flunk every class

Without this one you would DIE.

3 Notebooks

Notebooks are essential! No notes mean you can't study... If you can't study you fail, if you fail you don't go to college if you don't go to college your not smart, if your not smart you can't get a job, if you can't get a job you wont have money, if you don't have money you starve, if you starve you get super skinny, if your super skinny you become ugly, if your ugly nobody will love you, if nobody loves you you become sad, if your sad it soon leadd to depression, and depression leads to death!

If you didn't have notebooks, you couldn't write stuff down. And then you couldn't study it, and then you'd fail.

Person below: I don't study, and even if I did I'd have my textbooks or lined paper in my binder.

Come on nah u need dis

4 Eraser

Well if you don't have erasers then you would have to pay attention

5 Paper

I almost always carry scrap paper along with pencils and tin foil in my pockets.

Hey, I have to survive plus I probably will get stranded on my bike if I get into an accident since my phone don't work and people are often jerks.

I mean you can A) ask a teacher for a piece of paper or B) you can get a whiteboard so you do or don’t need paper

Paper is more important than a pencil. You could just use things like pens and crayons a substitutes. - MrLoser

Of course you need paper. Where else are you going to write at? The desk? - JaysTop10List

6 Folder

Bootiful neat way of keeping stuff organized

7 Backpack

Nobody as had back pack and them girls never have one and they just trying to look cute - Lilant

A backpack is VERY important because if you have to carry a whole bunch of textbooks home with your bare hands, you'll end up very tired. A backpack... all you need to do and put your stuff in and then put the handles on your back. Simple! - JaysTop10List

Backpacks. What else will you carry your stuff in?

I can just carry my stuff, or put it in my bike bags. (I bike to school) seriously caring your own personally book, lunch book, binder and HW folder and phone isn't hard.

8 Clorox Wipes
9 Highlighters

I am obseesed with highlighters

High liter are great. I use them for emphasis and just color coding homework titles. Then only cost about a dollar and y'all, they are GREAT😂

10 Pen

We use these all of the time

The Newcomers

? Shoes

The Contenders

11 Calculator

You won't understand the beauty of these things until you reach middle school.

12 Sanitizer

Honestly, hand sanitizer is the only thing that gets me through school. Do y'all know how many germs y'all pick up in a day. It is nasty😬 And it only cost like a buck at the dollar market. If you get from Bath and Body Works then it's like 1.75.

13 Crayons

I need crayons so I can feel the satisfaction of breaking them in half :D - Limeyy


Crayons are terrible - slocc

Only if you're in elementary school. In middle school, high school, and college, you either use them for projects or your own personal enjoyment.

14 Computer

I have 1

Why do you need a textbook if you have a computer? Everything is electronic nowadays.

15 Scissors

Good for self defense as well.

How else can you cut someone? I'm JUST KIDDING

16 Markers

Dude I have best markers

17 Text Books

At my school, we don't really use textbooks - MrZebra24

Is good

Text Books are arguably more important than pencils. If pencils didn't exist, we could just use pens or something like that.

You need textbooks for learning without electronics

18 Glue
19 Ruler

I need rulers like crazy but I do not have one I makes me unhappy

I use a protractor because it has the protractor and a ruler too! (Mine Also has a compass too but that's not common.)

20 Planner

A planner so that you can know what homework you have that night and when you have tests

21 Mechanical Pencils

They are good.

Why these so low

22 Staples
23 Headphones

Lol no one listens to their iPod or Phone in school but you have headphones when you are on a computer sometimes.

24 Sharpener
25 Phone

These are usually banned in schools

26 Binder

You can put paper and homework in here. Try to fine a pencil case with rings on it so you can attach it to the rings inside of your binder. Pens, glue, scissors, you can put many things in the pouch. And try to get tabs (separators), so you can keep organized of all the homework in each class, this works best if you are in junior high or high school. Try to collect as many pencils and pens as you can because, high chance you might lose one or two throughout the year.

27 Combination Lock

'Tis not used in school

28 Rubber Bands

Always cause mischief with these!

29 Four Pen

They make it so that you can be lazy and don’t have to haul around a planner. Hehehehehehe...

37 Clothes

If you don't have clothes yo can't go to school unless you wanna be known as the crazy person
