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!

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

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?
