Getting ready for back-to-school has everyone excited around the house. Even though they might grumble, you know the kids are eager to get back to seeing their friends and having something more exciting to do than sit around the house all day. As you get your house ready for back-to-school you might want to put some of these tips into action:
Get the Supplies Early
Most schools send out a list of required school supplies days before the first day. The sooner you can get these supplies the more ahead of the game you’ll be. You might be able to order them all online and take advantage of back-to-school discounts while you’re at it.
Make a Daily Plan
The first week back-to-school is the “shake down.” Everyone is working out their schedules and it requires a lot of coordination. You only have to focus on drop offs and pick ups. The kids have to sort through their various class schedules. It will help to give them a print out of their classes and note on their cell phones. Let them know where they belong!
The older the student, the more reading will be required of them. Teachers can make a syllabus available of the required reading for the semester. It will help if your kids can get a jump on the reading. It might also help if you’re reading along. After all, you will be checking their homework. Reading the same books also will keep them “honest.” No watching the movie!
Don’t Encourage Procrastination
At the end of every school day, two important questions need to be asked: What is for homework and when is it due? Overnight homework is easy to accomplish with a consistent schedule. Over the weekend, it can be a bit more challenging. That’s why it is best to get the homework done first thing Saturday morning. That way your student will have the rest of the weekend to relax and have fun.
Back-to-school prep is a good time to go through your kids wardrobe. The little ones might have outgrown a lot over the summer. The older ones might have decided on an entirely new style. In either scenario, you’re going to have to make room in the closet. It will also help to removed the rest of all the unwanted items from their room.
