Stationery

From Teflpedia
A selection of Japanese stationery items.

Stationery is things like pens, pencils, crayons, paper, printer ink, hole punch, stapler and staples, sellotape, blu-tac, etc[1]. As a teacher, you'll use a lot of this, and you might need to manage a stationery budget.

Stationery is handy realia to use in the classroom, especially for things like prepositions of place.

Generally, students are expected to bring their own stationery, however, they inevitably will forget, so having a supply of spare pens is a good idea, but be careful that they return them at the end of class.

Note: the noun stationery (spelt with an e) is often confused with a homophone, the adjective stationary (with an a), which means "not moving".[2] The two are cognates.
