How To Get Ready For Going Back To School

Whether the kids will be distance learning or in-person learning this school year, here are a few back-to-school transition tips you can do now to prepare.

Back-To-School Shopping

Get your kids involved when it comes back to school shopping and it won’t seem like such a chore. Set spending limits for items such as clothing, shoes and backpacks and allow them to pick out what they like best, either online or in a store.

Stock up on Supplies

Whether you homeschool or send your child off to a private or public school, there’s a good chance they’ll need some supplies for when they head back to school. Many schools provide a list of everything your child will need. Stock up on pencils, erasers, markers and rulers now so they are ready to go on day one. 

Create a Homework Station

Prepare for distance learning and homework by creating a comfortable environment where your student can focus on the tasks at hand. Create a space they can get their work done with little to no distractions.

Prepare for Mornings

Start preparing for school before the first day. Now’s the time to get ready for those hectic early mornings. Get in the habit now of making lunches the night before and have your children go to bed a little earlier each night so they’re ready for the first day. 

Wipe Out Germs

Back-to-school time often means germ season. Make sure to stock up on cleaning supplies (or make your own) to keep surfaces clean and stop the spread of germs.
