The beginning of a new school year can be an exciting and nerve-wracking time for kids and parents alike. Here are some back to school tips to help your family ease back into the academic year.
Tour the school: Make sure you attend the school’s open house. An event like this lets you and your child meet the teachers, while also familiarizing your child with the school’s layout. Younger kids might feel more comfortable once they know where to find their desk, playground and classroom.
Reconnect with friends: If your children didn’t get to see their school friends during summer, schedule a playdate in the weeks leading up to school. This is a fun way to refresh your child’s friendships — and to ensure your kid has a friend on the first day of school.
Splurge on a few supplies: Kids use their notebooks, pens and pencils for the whole school year. If your child loves the glittery notebook or wants a pencil with dinosaurs printed on it, go ahead and splurge. Your child will be excited to use these cool supplies on the first day of school, making it much more fun for your little one to head back to class.
