As the school year begins, you and your kids may feel excited for the new year. However, as the excitement wears off, school can become a challenge for some families. With a few of these back to school tips, you can stay on top of things and keep the excitement for the entire year.
Make a homework space
Make sure your kids have a place where they can do their homework. Whether this is a spot at the dining room table, a desk, or even in their room. Keep a box with all the supplies they might need—pencils, erasers, crayons, scissors, a calculator, etc.
Have a schedule
To make sure everyone in the family is getting enough sleep, create a schedule with set bedtimes and wake-up times. In addition, you should schedule family meals and after school activities, too, so everyone knows what to expect.
Have some fun
Talk to your kids about what they are learning at school. Try to find ways to incorporate the new things into your lives. For example, if they are learning about fractions, bake with them and let them do all the measuring.
