Background: School supply kits are absolutely essential for each child at the beginning of the academic year. For children, having adequate school supplies can drastically help them feel confident and enhance their academic performance. Many studies show that children having school supplies of their own can improve grades, creativity, attitudes towards learning, behavior, peer relationships and self-image. This is why having adequate school supply kits is so important because being prepared keeps children motivated and excited. If children are equipped with what they need, they will have a better learning experience.
