Teaching Supplies You Didn’t Know You Could Get at Walmart

From pocket charts to birthday crowns.

Brought to you by Walmart

Walmart's Teacher Shop has everything teachers need for Back to School, from bulk school supplies to storage and organization to classroom decor. 


When I was hired for my first teaching job, I couldn’t believe how empty my classroom was … and that I was expected to buy everything to make it feel like a classroom. With my non-existent budget, I wish I’d had access to more affordable teaching supplies. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover how many specialty teaching items that Walmart carries. I rounded up my favorites for you here:

Pocket Chart

I remember being shocked at how expensive pocket charts were. This one is a steal at $19.99 and it’s adjustable. The three sections connect and interchange with hook-and-loop tape. Looks like a great KWL chart to me.

Calendar Set

I’m still trying to figure out how this is only $14.99. It comes with a pocket chart and one hundred cards. *adds to cart*

Number Line

This adorable number line set is the perfect length of one of your classroom walls. The numbers count from -20 to 120 and the set comes in 14 pieces. Price point is $10.99.

Alphabet Line

I think I spent the same amount of money on a plain cursive alphabet set! This traditional manuscript line comes with pretty photos and runs only $12.99.

Chair Back Buddy

These little guys cost $9.99 apiece, and they’re perfect for conveniently storing school supplies. Plus, there’s a little plastic pocket for your student’s name.

Bulk Pencils

Does anything give a teacher more joy than a giant box of the best pencils on the planet? Get 96 #2 Ticonderoga pencils for $10.28.

Bulk Glue Sticks

My students always went through these washable Elmer’s glue sticks like crazy. This looks like a big box of happiness to me. 60 sticks for $15.13 works out to about 25 cents per stick.

Liquid Glue Jug

If you’ve ever made slime, you know you need a ton of glue. Enter this gallon jug of Elmer’s liquid glue for $10.88.

Colored Pencil Teacher Set

I thought only art teachers had this kind of stuff. With the colored pencils set, you get 10 each of twelve colors for $15.97. You can also get sets of crayons and markers.

Flair Pens

As a teacher, you’ve got to have your flair pens. This candy pop set from Paper Mate has gorgeous colors and runs $11.97.

Post-It NotePack

Well, this is just adorable. As a teacher, you can never have enough sticky notes, and $14.97 for 35 pads is a great deal.

Teacher Planner

A planner is a must, as far as I’m concerned. This 12-month teacher planner is darling, and it’s even cuter on the inside. $22.88.


Border? At Walmart? Yep. Get 234 feet of double-sided, scalloped border in 12 designs for $14.99.

Name Tags

With a traditional manuscript alphabet, number chart, shapes, addition chart, and ruler, these name tags are perfect for grades 1-3. A set of 36 costs $8.29.

Birthday Crowns

These are so cute, and a 30-pack should get you through a year of student birthdays. At $9.97, that’s pretty doable.
