Back To School Must-Have Supplies

Aug 21, 2014

Whether you love or loathe hitting the books, Kidzworld’s got your guide to the must-have school supplies that’ll make it fun to come back to class!

Stainless Steel or Glass Water Bottle

Look stylish (while doing your part to conserve the earth’s resources) by picking up your own water bottle. Stainless Steel are durable containers and come in lots of different designs—from floral and animal designs to Disney and Nickelodeon characters—the choice is yours!  Glass Bottles often come with silicone sleeves to protect them from breaking. Steer clear of plastic bottles—after some plastic bottles were reported to contain toxic elements, it’s best to play it safe and go with stainless steel.

Running Shoes

Your parents can’t say no to new shoes—get the right ones and they’ll protect your feet from the elements and keep you in shape for gym class. For a classic cool try Converse All-Stars or if you like more support go with some cushiony trainers. These days sneakers come in so many styles and colors that it’s easy to find a cool looking shoe that fits great too.

A Fresh Box Of Crayons

Nothing beats the smell of a new box of crayons. Make sure yours has a sharpener built into the back so you can recapture the crayons’ sharp points that’ll get worn down once you create a few artistic masterpieces. Pencil crayons are probably good too—they’re a little less messy and let you color finer lines..

New Backpack

Your backpack is a great way to express yourself—you can project your love for all things Miley or keep it simple with a nondescript bag. Make sure it’s big enough to fit your homework and your lunch bag and make sure you’re comfortable carrying it on your back—if it’s not comfy when it’s empty, imagine it stuffed with books! You’ll be carrying your backpack for a whole school year, so make sure it’s stylish and durable. There’s no use buying a cool looking bag if it’s going to fall apart in a week!

Dear Dish-It in the forums

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
