Transition Back To School

Wallmonkeys Peel and Stick Wall Graphic - Going to School
The kids had to go back to school recently after a break. However, they know the routine by now. Each time before they go back to school, I would sit with them and go through their school stuff together with them. We would decide what needs to be thrown out of their school bags, then we would pack it together. We would also pack their pencil cases and sharpen all their colour pencils and pencils and make sure they have all the school stationery they need. This packing and going through school things really helps in the transition back to school.

It puts them back in the school going mode. It is a bonding activity too for me and them. I would buy a few new things for them to make going back to school more exciting. However, sitting down and sharpening their old pencils teaches them to value used items.

Then we would go through their school work to make sure that they had completed any assignments that needs to be done so that they don't feel any anxiety or worry. It is also important to make sure that they start following the school routine bedtime hours so that their body gets used to the transition back to school as well.

In this manner, we're all set to go back to school, mentally and physically.
