School Classes Beginning This Week
It’s been a great summer and the kids have had their fun but now it’s time to prepare for another school year. Most local school districts will be opening their doors for classes on Thursday although the high school football season has already begun. If your child will be attending school for the very first time here are some tips to help you–and your child–prepare.
When buying such items as a coat, lunch box or school bag, make sure your child can open and close them with ease. Make sure the drinks container does not leak. Little things (like soggy sandwiches) can sometimes upset your child. If your child cannot zip his/her coat take time to teach him/her. Footwear with velcro is preferable.
Friendships are very important to your child. Invite your child’s new school friends to your home.
Make sure your child knows how to use the toilet properly.
Spend time with your child each evening if you can. Language is central to the learning process. Talk and listen to your child.
