Summer just flew by, didn’t it? It’s crazy to think heading back to school is just around the corner. To send off the kids last year we hosted an ice cream social to celebrate! It’s crazy to think we are already back!
To ensure this school year is better than ever here are some tips to help you kids stay organized and engaged.
Make The First Day Easier
Remember you don’t have to wait until the first day of school to get help or answers to your questions. Talk to the school ahead of time to address any concerns you might have for your child and their learning experience. This can help kids feel more comfortable with the environment since everything will be set in place before they even take a step into the school.
To cut down any stress of a new school or different routine, consider driving or walking your child the first day to help them feel more comfortable with the transition. Starting their new sleep schedule early will also help them adapt.
My favorite part of going back to school was having to choose new notebooks and binders. This can be a fun activity for you and your kids. Consider having a day to customize each folder, binder, and notebook to help your child stay organized throughout the school day. If they have a lot of materials they need to carry with them, ensure the backpack is a comfortable fit on their shoulders. Organize each compartment ahead of time to help cut down on the loss of pencils, pens, erasers and all the things that magically seem to disappear.
Looking for a new backpack? Pottery Barn Kids has plenty of sizes and patterns to be the perfect fit for your child.
Plan out a lunch schedule to help you and your child be ready for the upcoming weeks. Knowing when they need to obtain school from lunch or when they should have a homemade snack will be very useful. Consider meal prepping a nutritious breakfast also that they can take with them if need be.
Pottery Barn Kids also has some pretty amazing lunch boxes that are durable and cute.
May the upcoming school year be full of memories and learning! ~ Juliana
