Get Ready, Set, Back to School!

Posted on: September 5, 2010



So you and your child chose the backpack, pencils, erasers, water bottle, lunch bag etc…. So do you think you’re done? Nope you’re not! don’t forget to prepare your child mentally!!!

The first thing you should do  is visit your school! Especially if your child is new, why don’t you both take a walk and check out the playground, the cafeteria, meet the principal, etc…

Have a get together with your child’s last year’s classmates and have them make fun activities together. that way they will get used to seeing each other again and they would look forward to seeing them the next day.

Routine, Routine, Routine! Even i as a teacher need routine, Last week i started heading to bed earlier than usual just to let my body get used to sleeping early and waking up early again. The same goes with your child do it gradually!

Parents! Expect a lot of handouts and papers that will be given to your child so why don’t you set up a folder. If you  have more than one child write the name of each on a separate folder

You can divide it accordingly:

–  School reminders ( like trips, events, graduation day etc…)

– Activities /tests

– Newsletters

Enjoy the rest of your summer and have fun preparing for school.
