5 Tips to Get Kids Ready to Go Back to School

Posted on 08-08-2014 | Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro


Going back to school is an exciting time! Getting your child to see it that way is another story. The transition from summer to school can be difficult. Exchanging lazy mornings for early morning wake-up calls can initially produce more groans than grins. It’s time to raise the morale and make the effort to get your kids ready to go back to school with these 5 simple tips!

  1. Time to Rise and Shine! Start adjusting the alarm clocks now. Help them adjust to the soon-to-be new wake up time by gradually moving the clock back closer to their wake up time for school. It’s a process that benefits from starting sooner than later!
  2. Talk it Up. Start talking about the fun that comes with their return to school. Acknowledge it may be hard at first but it will be fun to see old friends and meet new ones. School is a great opportunity for children to learn and grow, and discussing the benefits of school with your child may help in the transition.
  3. Take a Trip. Do dispel the fear of the unknown, take a “field trip” to their school and walk around. Remind your child where the cafeteria is, where recess takes place, where he will be picked up and dropped off. Familiarize your child with the area again, giving him time to get reacquainted and less intimidated.
  4. Tack Up a Countdown Banner. Have the kids join in and make a countdown-to-school banner! Write the numbers on separate pieces of paper and remove them daily until school starts. Using bright colors and decorations will bring a feeling of excitement.
  5. Treat Your Kids to Fun Gear! Finding the right gear can make a big difference in the level of excitement for returning to school. It does not have to be expensive, but helping your child find a backpack that he/she loves or a new pair or shoes, will bring a smile to her face. You don’t have to break the bank to find a practical and fun item that will help the transition for your child.
