Summer is almost over, and the first school bell of the year is about to sound, which means it’s time to get ready for the first day of school. If you’re looking for some back-to-school tips to help get your school year started on the right foot, never fear. We’ve put together a few suggestions to ease your mind.
Get to know the school and teachers. One of the biggest worries for children at the beginning of the school year is whether or not they will like their new teachers. Introduce yourself and your child to your new teacher as soon as you can — usually at your school’s open house — to ensure that fear isn’t there at on the first day of school.
Buy the right supplies. In elementary school, your child will typically receive a list of needed school supplies. Make sure you purchase everything on that list to make sure they are prepared to begin — and feel free to let your child choose a special notebook or colored pen to make the supplies extra special! If your kids are going into junior high or high school, you should provide them with some notebooks, writing utensils, and folders to get them started on the right foot.
Practice your morning routine. You don’t want to wait until the first day of school to try out your morning routine. Begin practicing for school a few days in advance to help soften the transition between the carefree summer and the mayhem of school mornings.
