Tips for Starting the New School Year


Preparation is Key

1 -  Layout clothes. Pack lunches. Set out the breakfast dishes and cereal. Pack the backpacks. And so on.  Make your new systems kid-friendly so your young helpers can help you get things checked off your to-do list.

Create a homework station.

2 - If a task is simple to do, it’s more fun to do. Homework is no different. Decide on the best spot in your home to set up a homework station. Take into consideration how involved you need to be with homework and your child’s style.  Stock up on age appropriate supplies such as pens, pencils, erasers, paper, crayons, markers, a ruler, a calculator, a dictionary, basic craft supplies, and a pencil sharpener.

Create a system for school papers.

3 - There are two types of papers, those you need to take action on and those you’re keeping for future reference. Designate a convenient spot for items you need to act on or refer back to throughout the school year.


Do your homework everyday.

4 - Once you have your paperwork system set up, create a homework routine to help you and your kids stay on top of everything. Pick a time that works well for your energy level and fits with your other after school obligations—and then dig into those backpacks and get going.

With these simple strategies, staying organized all school year is as certain as a fresh box of crayons on the first day of school.
