Summer is coming to an end, and we all know what that means…Time to get back into the school spirit! Coming back to school from a long summer holiday is hard, especially if you`ve been lounging poolside for 3 months. Even though your children may not seem excited about returning to all the school work that lies ahead, I can guarantee they are ready to get back into a routine.
I always look forward to September, because it`s a fresh start, and we get back into a consistent schedule which our students look forward to as well. Heading back to school was my favourite time of year as a kid, because it was an opportunity to get new clothes, new supplies for school, and to see all of my friends that I had not seen all summer!
The best way to make the transition from summer break to school easier is to start by doing your regular school routine a week before school starts. Get all of your supplies together and labeled, pick out a cool new back pack, and start doing fun educational activities, like writing in a journal or reading a book. Going back to school doesn`t have to be hard work. It`s supposed to be exciting!
I hope everyone had a great summer, and are as excited as I am to start back up in September!
