As August comes into full swing, summer slowly fading out, back-to-school season is literally knocking on the door! My kids go back to school on Wednesday. This is the earliest I ever remember them starting school. It seems the summer was over in a blink of the eye!
Getting everyone back into a school type routine can be trying. I have 2 middle schoolers, 3 in elementary, and one toddler. Here are some great tips to help transition from "laissez les bons temps rouler" to getting back to the learning grind.
Morning Routines: New morning routines are a major change for most children when school starts. Establishing and discussing a morning routine with your children before school starts will help your child successful. Simple, well-defined, and easy steps and an easy-to-reference schedule, maybe with pictures, can engage your child and provide a wonderful visual guide for what she needs to do next (see pinned posts on Morning Routines board).
