my son starts kindergarten not this coming year, but next year. i am planning on stocking up on school supplies when they go on clearance this year. but in addition to the basic supplies, id like to get other things to help out the classroom, because i know alot of stuff comes out of the teachers pockets. so im asking for suggestions from teachers or former class moms of what extras would be helpful to get? thanks.

My kids are in SK and grade 1 and I have yet to be asked to supply anything, so I'm no help. Here's a bump though.

It seems like my daughters class always needs extra glue sticks, crayons, printer paper and dry erase markers.

Reams of copy paper. I gift the teachers 2 cases. One at the beginning of school and another after Christmas break. They run out so quickly!
