34 flashcards for teaching the names of common school supplies and familiar objects found in schools and classrooms.
The list includes both items that students (should) have in their own school bags as well as items likely to be found on the teacher’s desk only, such as a stapler. You will also find a few vocabulary cards for parts of the classroom, such as light switch and recycling bin.
Since this set includes a few items which a classroom may not have, such as a globe, microscope, or box cutter, you may want to go omit those cards beforehand. Alternatively, go through the entire set together as a class asking “Do we have a ~ ?” You could review prepositions of place at the same time!
Most of the images in this set show singular nouns, but a small number are plural.
Be forewarned: a few of these items are non-count nouns– I’m looking at you glue, tape, paper and scissors!
