Back to School Tips
It’s that time again!
Most of the nation is either fully back in school or about to start the new school year. Having a smooth transition from summer recess to back-to-school season can make or break the rest of the year. Each student has specific needs and wants for what helps them get through the school year, especially depending on the grade and learning level.
Here are some general tips that can help make it through another eventful school year:
-Plan out realistic goals: What is there to accomplish? What would help make a difference for the next year?
-Practice time management: Create schedules to help with getting well needed rest and establish healthy boundaries for tasks, needs, and wants in the day.
-Establish daily routine: Having a routine helps with over or under planning, especially for establishing good study habits and homework help.
-Meet with teachers/school administrators/parents: Knowing who will be spending the majority of the day with children and who can help them after school is best for maintaining good relationships.
-Organize clothing: Planning and preparing clothing for the week or night before school can help with morning routines and running late. Can even be helpful for students who have to wear uniforms.
-Plan lunches & snacks ahead of time: To prevent over or under eating, create easy and healthy foods that can be created in no time to help with sticking to schedules.
-Maintain Overall health: Conducting weekly mental, emotional, and physical health checks can help with burnout and other important issues students can face in and out of school. Everything affects one another; it helps to be able to clear the mind to allow for better positive results.
-Create a safety plan: Safety plans for all situations are best to practice or have established with students; from knowing and identifying health issues to school safety practice, set and know what plans are in place and what students should do before, during, and after incidents.
Have a great school year for all students, teachers, school administrators, and parents/guardians!
