3 Tips To Get Ready For Back To School

    So far, 2020 has proven to be both unfamiliar and unpredictable. As the back-to-school season quickly approaches, we are more than likely going to be faced with the same uncertainty. This school year, classrooms are going to look a bit different than it has in previous years. Whether at home, in a classroom, full time or part time, the need to maintain good grades and continue to learn is still crucial.

    As a parent, getting your young learner back into an academic mindset can be challenging. This blog will discuss 3 tips to help you and them transition back into a school-focused mindset.

     

    GET THEM MOTIVATED

    Between last school year ending early and an extra-long summer, the last thing on either yours or your kid’s minds is going back to school. Transitioning from a laid-back mindset into an academic focused one can definitely be hard to get motivated or excited about.

    One of the ways you can motivate them to tackle the school year head on is by rewarding them. A great way to get them motivated is by offering reward for effort rather than outcome. This may do the trick to give them the drive to actually put in the effort this school year to work hard and do their best. This reward can be in the form of a new toy, or a trip to get ice-cream after turning in a big paper or test.

     

    PREPARE WHAT YOU CAN AHEAD OF TIME

    Being unprepared for the school year is only going to make things harder on everyone added on top of the uncertainty for how things will be going. Getting things ready ahead of time can make the transition phase a little easier to move into. Shopping for school supplies or new clothes/uniforms early will put the idea into their minds that school is approaching and may come as less of a surprise when it does eventually arrive.

    Some students also love getting new school supplies every year to make them more excited for the new school year so they can show off a new backpack, notebooks, or lunchbox. Being prepared will also make it easier on you so you aren’t having to run around last minute to find things that may be sold out after waiting too long to shop.
