Get the kids ready to conquer school
IT’S almost that time of year again – in a few weeks school will be back in session. Is your child ready to succeed? Are you ready to help?
Get the children to bed on time.
Proper rest is essential for a productive school year. Get your child used to the school routine by transitioning to earlier wake-up/bed times now.
Make healthy meals.
Hungry kids can’t concentrate on learning, so good nutrition plays an important role in your child’s school performance.
Studies show that children who eat healthy, balanced breakfasts and lunches do better in school.
Fix nutritious meals at home the night before to save time in the morning.
Prepare a study area.
Set up a special place at home to do school work. Remove distractions. Make it clear that education is a top priority in your family – show interest and praise your child’s work.
Make a pledge to read with your child for 20 minutes every day. Your example reinforces the importance of literacy and reading lets you and your child explore new worlds of fun together.
