We don't call it supplies. My son doesn't say supplies. I like the word junk. So I'm also thinking of writing "JUNK" on every pocket because it's so apt, (the pockets will be full of junk!) and because I just want to affirm that his word choice in the essay was right on.
I might also include the four-letter word Pray. It's a good reminder each morning and will be tonight when I meet his teacher for parent conferences!
