It’s that time of the year again! The summer is coming to a close, and it’s almost time for school to start. Here are 5 ways to prepare for the upcoming school year!
#1) Create a Workspace at Home:
We all know how difficult it can be to get kids to settle down long enough to focus on homework. If there’s too much going on, kids can be easily distracted. Creating a quiet workspace for them to return to anytime they have homework during the year could help them to stay focused longer.
#2) Meal Prep:
When school does start, things can seem a little crazy. That first week back always takes some adjusting. Prepping your meals for the first week of school can help you to stay sane during all of the chaos. Who knows? You might love it and continue to meal prep throughout the entire school year.
#3) Get Back Into a Routine:
Routine is key when getting your household ready for back-to-school. Summertime is a time for fun in the sun. The days are longer, and we all love to take full advantage. Sometimes that means bedtime routines are less enforced. Getting the kiddos back into their school year sleep schedule can make all of the difference when that first week of school does roll around.
#4) Organization is Key:
Papers, papers, and more papers! During the school year, there is a constant flow of schoolwork coming into your home. Some of it can be thrown away once it’s graded, but some things are nice to save. A filing cabinet for your children’s school work, organized by grade, is a great way to keep all of that paper organized. As your child grows, the items you chose to put inside of it will become great keepsakes.
#5) Be as Prepared as Possible:
Every item on this list falls under being prepared. It’s easier said than done when we all live very busy lives, but the more things you can do in advance, the better things will probably be when the school year begins.
Everyone’s households run differently, and it is entirely up to you how you choose to prepare. These are a just a few suggestions we thought we’d share. Most importantly always remember you’re doing great, and we hope you have a wonderful school year!
