Back to School—A 3 Step “Pre” Introductory

This may seem a little early to get into back to school mode, but planning as far enough ahead as you are able will make the chaos of changing schedules come so much easier!  I’m sure you can all guess what I’m going to say next—start your children off right with an organized backpack! I can’t stress this enough. Teaching your children to stay organized from day one is key in staying on top of schoolwork throughout the year and allows them to be stress free when looking for school items and assignments. It will make school so much more fun.
1.     Get a separate binder with blank paper and labeled tabs for each subject. I can never stress labels enough—label everything!
2.     Have a pencil holder with all of the writing supplies, scissors, erasers etc. that your child will need. Teachers usually send a supply list home, but you can shop for a pencil case now. I love this one from Target, but there will be sales galore come August.
3.     Get a planner or a small notebook and teach your child how to track homework assignments as they come and check them off as they finish. This will help them in the long run, but this is also a great habit for parents and caretakers. You will know exactly what needs to be done and how to help your children finish and succeed this upcoming year.
Let this small guide be a starter as you start thinking about the upcoming year. When you start shopping, remember to pick up items that make your children excited to learn. Shopping with your children is a great way to ensure that they will have everything they need and will involve them in their own learning process—this can only help set them up for success!
