Stacie, No on knows until they have done it awhile and worked out the kinks. Don't feel like you are suppose to know all this stuff. Try something then make adjustments where needed. This is all very exciting for you enjoy it! blessings carol wrote:Thanks. I'm not sure how many students I will have in total. I don't think they even know since it's a brandnew school. The only thing I was told is that I will have no more than 25 students to a class. I was looking at a lot of classpacks for paints, pencils, crayons, etc...but maybe I don't need that much? See, this is why I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. I don't even know how the tables will be set up to know how many students per table.

How many students will you have- that will help to figure out how much you'll need of supplies. I get things like two watercolor pans per table, and then a couple of boxes of refill strips, for example. Also, 4 qts of each color I need of tempera, but more of white is usually
 what I'll go through in a year. I have about 500 students and a pitiful budget. If I get low on supplies, I turn to the donated supplies, or those supplied by the school to help me get through.
Whoever mentioned a rack- that's a critical item. I use two small ones, to fi the 12x18 paper.
Feel free to email me off list

Hi, I just signed up here. I have just been hired for my first teaching job...a K-8 art teacher at a new charter school. Because the school is new, and because I have no experience, I could use some help, really any advice at all...but right now I'm in the process of creating my supply list. I was given a catalog and asked to make a list. Right now, there is no equipment, no supplies. I am starting from scratch. It's kind of a daunting task. I'm having trouble even picking out paints and papers. If any of you have any ideas, favorite brands, equipment and shelving that has worked well for you, cheap solutions, things I can't live without...I'd love to hear them. Thanks so much in advance!
