Once the summer vacations are over its time to go back to school and with that comes buying school supplies.
Few high schools have long list of supplies to shop for, but teenagers have their own ideas about buying stylish school supplies and here are a few supplies your child may need.
High school students need binders and folders for organizing their papers. They might use separate folders of brands like ROXY because they have more designer folders. They might also buy plain colored folders and decorate them with stickers, drawings or decoupage, add flat sequins or confetti.
The next is buying a backpack. All schools do not have lockers. The backpack should be little trendy with many outside and inside pockets to keep different school supplies. The bag with zipper or less button is more easy to use. A bag which has reversible side gives two different styles to the bag. An option of leather or vinyl material is a better idea to go for.
A small clutch to hold the pens is also one of the necessary supplies. You can also go for a pencil case having a three tired version. This will give you more space to keep paper clips, pens and any other items. A trendy and wide variety of pencil cases can be seen on the websites of Barnes and Noble or tiered pencil cases.
Some schools limit to the use of brown paper but few allow the colored wrapping papers, which can be used for covering the books. On colored wrapping papers students can draw or paste some stickers to make it look more interesting.
For teenagers these days it’s a fashion to use opaque zippered pouch for storing things like blotting paper, gloss, mirror, deodorant, mints, lotion, facial tissue and other items. They can also use this as a wallet to keep money.
Few other latest technologies of supplies used these days by high school students are 3-ring binder, colored pencils, 3 computer discs , backpack, eraser, colored pens, graph paper, glue stick, Internet access, hand sanitizer, markers, highlighters, planner/organizer, pens/pencils, paper clips, pencil sharpener, poster paper, pocket dictionary, public library card, pocket folders, ream of computer paper, stapler, thesaurus, scissors, tissues, spiral notebook, scientific calculator with fraction key, compass, circular protractor, index cards, rulers, foreign language dictionary and electronic translator.
Technologies and needs keeps on changing but to keep the basic school supplies is a necessity.
