 I would add freezer paper.  Yes I said freezer paper.  It's super cheap and you can roll out as big of piece as they need or want.  Works well with markers, paint, crayons, whatever!  It's great for murals or timelines too.  My dining room is tastefully decorated with freezer paper.

 Aww ~ Don't worry. You are going to be beautiful at this.  And there's nothing more fun than this age. You get to watch their whole body light up when they have learned something and that alone will energize you and give you even more ideas for future "lessons".   If you feel like you need some inspiration, just come in here and ask and we would love to help "inspire" you.  :)   Now just go, and have fun!  :)

 Looks like I'm basically set then :) I know it's 'just' kindergarten, but I want everything to go smoothly and I have this constant fear that Im going to forget something major...Its so nervewracking!

 YESS!!  I love butcher paper (what we call freezer paper).  We outlined their little bodies and glued in all the parts: stomach, and some bones, heart, lungs, even yarn for arteries and veins!  Just used it to make a big poster of the solar system.

I would add dry erase boards and markers. And some kind of counters, even if its just a jar of beans to practice counting for math.
