One important way you can support your child’s school is by providing extra classroom supplies for teachers. We shop at Walmart for Pilot Pen products and other back to school products to create care packages for our children’s teachers.

Every August, the kids and I create care packages for all their teachers, including the specialists like music, art and even gym! We shop at Walmart together to purchase classroom supplies for teachers.
Teachers work really hard and spend so much of their own money throughout the year. As the PTA president for the elementary school for two years, I know just how much classroom supplies for teachers are appreciated by the staff members.
We purchased a couple of different Pilot Pen products to go into our care packages including G2 Fine 10pk Black + Bonus FriXion clicker and G2 Fine 10pk Assorted + Bonus FriXion clicker. They were a great deal at Walmart with the G2 10pk + Bonus on Rollback for $9.88 each.
G2 pens come in four point sizes and multiple barrel styles with an extra comfortable grip and smooth gliding ink in 27 bright and vibrant colors. (I really love using these for my planner, too!)
Creating these back to school classroom supply kits are a great way to teach kids about supporting and giving back to their community.
My husband and I are committed to making sure we raise good citizens. This is one way that we are able to demonstrate those values in a very meaningful way.
You can also use this opportunity to practice math skills such as budgeting, rounding, counting change, with your kids.
Classroom Supplies for Teachers List
Here are some ideas for creating a classroom donation care package:
- Disinfectant wipes
- Pilot Pen products
- Hand sanitizer
- Paper clips
- Glue sticks
The kids handwrite notes to each teacher and we deliver them during the first week of school together. (As an added touch, make sure you include this fun Teacher Appreciation Subway Art print in a nice frame.)
Free Back to School About Me Printable
I think that helping our children’s teachers get to know them more quickly really helps both the kids and the teacher. Our son is especially “slow-to-warm-up” so we have found that this back to school “about me” printable helps to foster a connection. (You can also find another Getting to Know Me Printable here.)
Plus, it is a great chance for the kids to practice their best handwriting!
Tips for Printing
- Under your printer settings, select the highest print quality
- Be sure your printer is not running low on ink
- For durability, I like to print onto cardstock

As you can see, Olivia needs to work on spelling this year! 🙂
For older children, Pilot Pen products also make a great addition to your Homework Caddy. We update and restock this a couple times throughout the year as needed. It really comes in handy!
