I made this list for someone this morning and thought it might make a good post. Please feel free to edit or add things that are missing.

I have specifically NOT listed sizes here for each sheet as there is no one perfect size for each component. Wood varies a great deal and there will be several size/density combos that will give you the right strength for the weight budget. Look at the plan for specifics on how the designer planned and select wood accordingly.

So I would recommend that you start with the Salt Jr. design that Kang made specifically for juniors.

If you have the time, the F1D Jr. from LeoP is nice bridge from LPP to F1D. Basically an LPP built to F1D weight. It will get them to learn to how handle the lighter stuff.

So here is what you will need:

Each sheet of fuse wood will yield two 9" fuses.
Each sheet of stub wood will yield three stubs.

Wing spar wood - each should be enough for 2-3 wings.

Wing tip wood - each will be enough for several wings.

Wing rib wood - Each will be enough for several wings.

Stab spar wood - Each will be enough for several stabs.

Stab tip wood - each will be enough for several stabs.

Stab rib wood - each will be enough for several stabs.

Prop outline wood. Each will be enough for several props.

prop rib wood - Each will be enough for several props. You can use same sheet for fuse vertical webs.

Misc wood: You'll need some 3/32", 1/16" and 1/20" in 5-6# range. You should be able to find in your stash or local hobby shop.

Supplies:

Balsa stripper - one for straight wood, one for tapered wood.
OS film

3M-77 spray

Cautery

Double edged razor blades

Single edged razor blades

Syringe with blunt needle for glue applicator

Small glue bottle to keep syringe tip in

Acetone

003 boron

Duco

Harlan boron glue pot

Harlan bearings

Decent recent rubber.

Winder

Torque meter

o-ring material

Good milligram scale

notebook for each kid and decent pen. (Pigma Micron 05 is my go-to for my notebook)

Pigma Micron 005 pen in black for marking parts.

Rubber stripper

Coin envelopes for storing motors.

Box to hold motors.

Form for building props on.

1/4" tubing for mandrel.

Tailboom form from Ray Harlan

Bracing wire from Ray Harlan

Micrometer

0.013" wire

round nose needle nose pliers for forming wire (Michael's - look in beading section)

Flat face needle nose pliers for forming wire

Small brushes

This will get you started and is, I think, pretty complete.

I'm not sure you had the tailboom wood in there, but I did see the form. That's one thing I wish I'd bought two sheets of when I ordered wood  Roll Eyes
