Summer vacation is officially winding down. Soon it will be time to start setting alarms, packing lunches and sticking to stricter bedtime routines. It can be tough getting back in the swing of a schedule after spending the summer at home. Help your kids get ready for the upcoming school year with these tips…
1 – Start heading to bed earlier as a family. No more week nights of staying up late! Get the kid’s body’s used to a different and stricter sleep pattern now instead of later.
2 – Establish a place in your home that will be your student’s study space. This will be where they store their books and backpack and this is where homework will be done.
3 – Shop for lunch box essentials now. Start filling the pantry with items that you can easily pack for school lunch so you aren’t scrambling the night before school starts.
4 – Shop for school supplies together with your kids. Let them feel involved and excited by picking out their own backpacks and notebooks.
5 – Check with your school registrar to make sure all forms for enrollment are complete. You may need additional paperwork that you can start collecting now.
6 – Go over the school bus route so you and your children are comfortable with where they will get on and off the bus for school.
