Get the kids ready to con­quer school

Central and North Burnett Times - - BACK TO 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.

Read to­gether.

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.
