School stuff - What do you need?

With a bit of luck you can still enjoy the wonderful summer period. The chance is great, however, that the end of the holiday is in sight. For a moment, we exchange the relaxed awakening again for the morning stress.
The school bag may still be in the corner where it was thrown in for a few weeks, but in mid-August the schools will start again for some of the Dutch children. Maybe your son or daughter is going to the High School for the first time! Exciting!! The school books are usually arranged via Van Dijk, but you also have to purchase the necessary resources yourself. Think for example of an agenda, pencils, pens, notebooks, et cetera. A few years ago the V & D was known for its extensive school camp, but it has since closed its doors. The HEMA has responded well to this and now has an extensive collection of school supplies. For most things you can actually go there. But what do you really need?

What does a bridge beeper need?

Of course, every school has its own checklist. As a bridge peeper you get it automatically on an information evening or a day out. However, there are quite a few products that are listed on the checklist of each school. We will take a look at some of them!

School agenda

Although homework will usually be mentioned in the Magister app, the school agenda remains high on the checklist. I have bought several (my son now goes to the third), but he has never written a letter in it. Maybe it works differently at your school, so just mention the best agendas. In 'my time', an agenda was much more than a booklet for your homework. The diaries were covered and decorated and in fact there was little room left for mentioning homework. It became true works of art, which often went from hand to hand. "Ah, may I see your schedule!" No idea if this is still the case. I have a son who is averse to creativity (and homework). So his diary looks just as new at the end of the school year as when I bought it.

Amsterdam blond

I love Blond Amsterdam myself. It is cheerful and it is funny. This Blond Amsterdam agenda would definitely have been my favorite. Donut Worry about school with the new school agenda of Blond Amsterdam! The agenda is full of patterns and illustrations of snacks. Quotes like 'Fries before Guys' also appear on the agenda.

I understand there no ball from

Humor always does well. A school agenda of Make that the cate wise with questions and boxes in which you can write or paste something. The schedule contains class schedules, grade lists, an annual overview and a reading ribbon. I find these kinds of texts hilarious. The look is tight and basic. If you do not like frills but dry humor, this is highly recommended.

School bag

Many schools now have lockers where you can store textbooks so you do not have to drag them back and forth. Nevertheless, a good backpack or school bag is important. After all, enough has to be dragged back and forth. Notebooks, workbooks, pencil cases, diary and yes, but sometimes also some books. You have to be able to do your homework at home.

Backpack Game over

This is the backpack that Rocco currently has. It is a huge rugged backpack with a print of the Grim Reaper who pounds his two fists forward with the words 'Game over'. What I especially like about this backpack is the firmness. Rocco has been with him for a while now and he is not really careful about it, but he is still very complete. Before he got it, he had already worn a number.

Other school stuff

The other list is just as important but definitely less interesting for your son or daughter. Because such a list can be useful, we mention all other necessities:

o case
o calculator (check at school which model this should be!)
o cover paper (or stretchy book covers)
o notebooks A5 with lines
o notebooks with lines and squares
o fasteners
o notepad
o ring binder or file
o tabs for the ring binder / file
o insert sleeves for the ring binder / file
o geo-triangle
o passer
o glue stick
o scissors
o pens (blue, red, black)
o pencils (B, HB, HB2)
o colored pencils
o sharpener
o eraser
o markers
o hightlighters
o correction fluid / correction pen

Often there are also dictionaries on the list. I bought them for Rocco from the Action two years ago. There they were the most advantageous at the time. I must confess that he has never looked at them before. Long life Google Translate. The chances are that you will see the following dictionaries on the list:

Dutch English
English Dutch
Dutch German
German Dutch
Dutch French
French Dutch

If it is not really mandatory, I would still have to wait with this purchase ...
