Try out these tips to get your child ready for the new school year.
It’s officially back-to-school season! However, after a long summer, it can be difficult to get your child back into an academic mindset. Luckily, there are things that you can do to get your child ready and excited to return to the classroom. Here are some suggestions you should try.
While going back-to-school shopping is a great way to gather all the supplies your child will need for the school year, it also offers a great opportunity to get your child excited for their first day back. While you should obviously grab essentials such as notebooks, pens, and pencils; you should also allow your child to pick out fun things like a new backpack and outfit. This will help them get excited for the first day of school.
Re-Establish a Sleep Schedule
During the summer months, you probably were a little more relaxed when it came to your child’s bedtime. However, a sleepy and grumpy child does not make for a good student. This is why you should enforce stricter bed and wake-up times for your child in the weeks leading up to the start of school. This will ensure that your child is adjusted and well-rested for days filled with learning.
Organize an After-School Schedule
Finally, you should sit down with your child and discuss their after-school schedule. For instance, you should discuss which activities they want to try and when and where they will complete daily homework assignments. By including your child in this discussion, you can cut down on the amount of nagging and arguments come homework time.
