Here is a list of supplies that you will want for 8th grade. I encourage you to buy it all now while it is cheap and then have it at your house as we need it throughout the year. For example the notebooks I suggest you buy are less than 25 cents at WalMart now and will be over a dollar by October.
10-15 of the cheap one subject notebooks.
1 graph notebook, these are more expensive but you will need it for a few chapters of math
Pencils, lots of them and lead if you buy mechanical pencils. At least 3 ten packs of pencils
pens blue and black ink
Red pens for correcting, editing, revising, at least one ten pack
lined notebook filler paper, I suggest 5 packs of the 150 pages each at under a dollar a piece.
4-8 folders to get organized in, it depends how your child likes to be organized.
lined index cards, they sell them 300 for $1.24 at WalMart.
One water bottle we have water in our room but do not allow the use of cups because of spilling, so a good water bottle would be handy
To keep at home for homework you should have a set of colored pencils, scissors, and glue sticks
These are items are recommended NOT required.
