Even students who enjoy school may be sad to see summer end. The tips below will help to get the kids excited to go back to school.
Get The Kids Involved
Whether it’s their backpack, new shoes, school supplies, lunch box, or clothing—get the kids as involved as possible. Let them pick what they want both online and in-person, including an extra special first day of school outfit. This should include getting their at-home study area reorganized.
Plan A Fun Last Week
The last week before school starts should be fun, not stressful. This means you should have most of your shopping out of the way. Plan something fun with family but also consider a sleepover with their best friends, especially ones they may not have seen much during the summer. This slumber party or play date with friends will help them bond before the new school year.
Have The Kids Set A Few Fun School Year Goals
Last but not least, have the kids set a few goals for the year to come. This might include new sports they want to try, mastering a new electronic skill, or signing up for a new elective or extracurricular activity. These goals should be student-driven and something they are eager to learn and do.
Here’s to a great school year!
