14 things to do before the first day of school
There is just about a month left before my kiddos go back to school.
I thought this month I would give you a look into what we do to get ready for school. There is always so much to do before the first day. Here is our back to school checklist.
Here is the quick hit list. Read below for more details.
2. Organization Station
3. School Supplies
4. Encourage Friendships
Use NEATLINGS Chore Chart System to help your kids earn their play dates and sleepovers by doing chores. After all it is always nicer to have company when the house and the kids rooms are organized and clean. This is also a great way to get the house organized and clean before the busy school season. It's a win win for everyone!
Again we set this up on our NEATLINGS Chore Chart, this makes keeping track of it and remembering it so easy to do. I have them do one page of math a day. It only takes a few minutes. I use a great website that offers FREE math worksheets for grades K-6th. The website is well organized and the math sheets are quick and easy to print off. www.k5learning.com/free-math-worksheets
6. Lookin' Good
8. Attend the School Open House
10. Sleep Schedule
12. New Kids = New Friends
13. Bring or Buy School Lunch
If you child brings their own lunch then make sure they have a lunch box and that you have a few lunches planned out.
14. After School Routine
Start implementing a responsibility and chore system to keep everyone on task. Include this in your families home command center so everything is in one easy place.
We use NEATLINGS to keep us organized. It works for all ages, is expandable to work for any size family, can be set up differently for each child and is beautifully illustrated to make it easy for young ones.
Here are just some of the cards available with NEATLINGS system that will help keep your kiddos managing their after school tasks without the need for parental nagging.
