    I think it depends on the grade level you're teaching. I taught 4th grade last year, and this year I'll have 5th. I feel like they're old enough to be responsible for their materials, so I hold them accountable. If they do not have their supplies in class, they receive the consequence for being unprepared. They have to do without or borrow from someone.

    For items they don't use every day (markers, crayons, glue, scissors, etc.), I keep stored in a bin. When it's time to use them, a student passes them out. Students keep pencils, pens, and highlighters in their own desks.

    I have never supplied anything in the past, but this year I'll use a ticket system. If students have to borrow supplies, they will have to give me a ticket, which is one less they will have to use toward a prize from the box.
