Back to School Preparations Parents Should Know

School is back in session, and it's time for parents to get ready for the school season. Whether you have children in kindergarten or high school, there are things that you can do to help them start their school year strong.


Check out your school's curriculum.
  • Ask the school for a copy of their curriculum. If they don't have one, ask them to make one and send it to you via email or snail mail so that you can read through it before starting classes. You should be able to get an idea of what subjects are being covered during each day and which topics are being emphasized more than others (if any). This will help ensure that you know what's expected from your child when they begin attending class each day!

  • Ask the teacher if he or she can give you a copy of his/her weekly schedule so that it includes both assignments due dates as well as other important information such as how much time should be spent on each lesson within each block period (e.g., math)


Find out what your child's teacher is thinking.

At the beginning of the school year, it's important to find out what your child’s teacher is thinking. Ask your child's teacher:

  • What they expect from their students.

  • What they think is important for the students to learn.

  • If there are any concerns or worries about your child succeeding in school.

You can also ask if there are any specific things that you should do differently with regards to preparing for school.



ASK!

You are the parent, but you should also be a friend. The best way to find out what your child's friends think is by asking them directly. This can be done in person or over email or text message. You might want to ask the teacher, too, since he or she will have insight into how well your child learns in class and how much effort they put into homework assignments each night before bedtime.


If all else fails and it's time for some outside advice from an objective party (evidently no one else has been able to help), talk with other parents who are currently going through similar situations at home: grandparents of children who've just moved into new schools; grandparents of older children who have graduated high school but still need help with their homework; even elementary school teachers themselves!


If nothing else works here—and let's face it: sometimes nothing does work—there are plenty more options available online where people who care about kids' education go online looking for answers from experts!



Be involved in your child's life at school.

You’re a parent, so you know your child best. But don't just rely on what they tell you—be involved in their life at school. Here are some tips to make sure that happens:

  • Know your child's schedule. This will help ensure that he or she gets the right amount of sleep, which is crucial for good health and school performance.

  • Attend parent-teacher conferences (if applicable) and other events related to the classroom environment like field trips or sports games; this gives both parties an opportunity to discuss issues as they arise rather than waiting until something happens later during the year when it may be too late for intervention before it becomes difficult or impossible due to scheduling conflicts between classes/school events/etc., which can lead up into behavior issues being ignored.


preparing routines that work.
  • Keep the study area clean and organized. This is a make-or-break factor in student success, so you should make sure your child has a quiet place to study, with enough space to spread out work.

  • Make sure your child has a routine for studying each night before bedtime (or at least every other day).

  • Set up a timer for study time and stick with it—don't let yourself get distracted by other things throughout the day or evening!

  • Reward system for good grades: When children earn good grades on their assignments, offer them rewards such as movie tickets or ice cream sundaes at the end of each week; if they have trouble earning good grades, try giving them extra homework assignments instead.




Getting a tutor.

Tutoring can be a great way to help your child with learning problems. It’s important to find someone who is qualified and has experience in the subject area you’re working on, so be sure to do some research first.


You may also want to consider getting a tutor for test preparation or time management tips, which will

make it easier for them to study for their tests at school. Some tutors specialize in specific subjects such as math, science or English so this might be an option if your child struggles with certain topics that are not their strong suit! This could also help reduce anxiety around exams since they won't have as much pressure

knowing there's someone else taking care of these things for them!

As parents, we want our children to succeed in everything they do, and that includes school—the place where they will spend the next years of their lives. The good news is that there are many ways to make sure your child is getting the most out of his or her education: by finding out what’s being taught at school before enrolling them, making sure they have a good teacher who understands their needs, helping them learn how to be on time for class (or earlier!), and setting up routines that work! Good luck and may you have a positive school year ahead!
