Back to School in Edmonton: Five Tips to Ensure the Kids Are Ready for Success

Posted by Sara MacLennan on Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 at 10:56am.

Summer is almost over, which means that the kids are getting ready to go back to school in Edmonton. Since the school year is just around the corner, it is time to start preparing the kids for their trip back to school. Follow these five tips to ensure your kids are ready to succeed during the upcoming school year in Edmonton.

Re-Establish a School Schedule

There is no way your children can succeed at the start of the school year if they are not adjusted to the schedule. While your kids are going to want to sleep late every day during the summer, you have to start waking them up early several weeks before school starts. This will allow their bodies to slowly adjust to the change in sleep patterns. By the time the school year starts, they will be awake and alert at the start of the day.

Prepare for New Classes

Every new school year brings a completely different set of classes for your children. Once you know your children’s class schedules, you can have them start some early studying and reading on the subjects. Not only will they know what to expect when they start school, but they will also have an easier time learning the new material. This is even more important if your children typically struggle in school. Learning a new subject takes time, so give your children as much time to learn as possible.

Talk To Your Children About Their Worries

While your children may not express it, they are most likely very anxious to start the new school year. The best way to understand and alleviate your children’s fears for the upcoming school year is to talk to them. Once you have a good grasp on what is making your kids nervous about going back to school, it is up to you to eliminate all of these fears. If you children are nervous while in school, then are most likely not going to be doing much learning.

Get Everything Organized for the First Day

Kids and parents tend to lead a much less organized life when there is no school. The first step in getting everyone organized for the upcoming school year is by getting all of their supplies ready. Nobody wants to scramble around in the morning looking for supplies before the first day of school. Another great way to get everyone organized is by establishing a designated area of your house for homework. If your kids know exactly what to do and where to go after they get home, then they should have no problem finishing their homework in a timely manner.

Buy New Clothes for a New Year

Everyone looks and feels better in a new set of clothes, so build your children’s confidence by taking them to get some new clothes before the new school year. If your children are confident about their appearance, then they will be excited to head back to school – which will motivate them to succeed. Back-to-school season can be stressful, so make sure your kids are ready for another year of learning with these tips.
