Middle School Supply Reminders

What do we need for class today?

This is one classroom routine that I find middle school students respond well to. 

  • Easy and effective classroom routine
  • Works great for the Upper Grades
  • Supports Student Responsibility

What do we need for class today? These large visual reminders can be posted on the front board near your learning goal OR on your door/door frame so that kids can see them from the hallway.

Preparation: Print, laminate and attach magnets to each icon. (Pick and choose icons that relate to your class.)

NOTE: I made these using commercial use clipart and fonts from You can easily make your own, but if you are short on time, they are available here.

Unused icons can be stored in a folder on the door for easy access.  Many teachers greet students at the door so it is easy to switch out the icons for each new lesson/day or class.

Predictable routines and structures give students the opportunity to be responsible for their own progress and success. 

If you teach the upper grades and your kids switch classes, these reminders are an easy and effective tool for helping students come prepared to class!
