Yesterday was the day where I met the parents of my kids…It was a great and positive day, the parents were amazing and a bit nervous about the upcoming year.

Parents tend to be worried all the time, if you are a parent you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about… Some parents came up to me and informed me of their child‘s behavior in class or where she wants her child to sit. I smiled and nodded and was pleased to get all these information from them. Some teachers get annoyed by this but I on the other hand don’t, I love to communicate with them because after all I’m teaching their kids and they all want what’s best for their child.

It is very important for you to attend the parent’s orientation in the beginning of the year, if you do not have time then make some time it’s not going to take more than 2 hours. In the orientation you will get to meet your kid’s teacher, visit their class, learn about school policy and procedures, dress code, rules, what to expect in each subject.

Have a great year teachers and parents!

By the way tomorrow is our first day of school! Exciting!! I have to wake up early tomorrow so good night everyone!

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.
