School is approaching, again. Early mornings, “I don’t wanna go”, and packed lunches. It will be here before we know it! Check out these ways to get the kids back to ready!
Checkup with the Doctor
Make sure the kids shots are up to date, they’re healthy and ready to go back to school. A general checkup is important before sending kids back into a heavily populated environment with lots of germs and sick kids.
Have the kids visit the dentist before school starts to avoid missing days in class. An X-Ray and a cleaning are important to maintain good oral health.
Get a fresh haircut before sending the kids off. Starting the school year off on a positive and confident note will set the tone for the whole school year.
Check off those school supplies lists early to avoid the crowds. Nothing is more aggravating than having to shove your way through the school supply isles 2 days before school starts. Plus, most stores won’t have EVERYTHING you need on your list all and you may have to visit multiple stores.
If your kids are anything like mine their clothes from last year are either stained, destroyed, or they don’t fit them anymore. Be sure to check their sizes at a local store before ordering online, chances are they’ve grown quite a bit over the summer. Don’t forget new shoes as well.
Meet the Teacher
Get to know the teacher before the first day of school. This will help your child feel more comfortable and confident on the first day of school. Show them where their classroom is and teach them their room number.
Make Lunch Money Deposits
If you’re able to put money on their lunch accounts, do so. This way it’s one less thing they have to keep up with during the first week or so of school.
Get into a Schedule
A week or two before school starts begin a routine. They’ve probably been staying up late most of the summer, and the last thing you want is your kid going to school tired during the first week.
