Getting them there is only half the battle.
Most kids are excited about the first day of school. After reconnecting with new and old school mates the enthusiasm seems to decline. Managing that change requires both parent and teacher engagement.
The teacher’s part comes from creating fact filled fun learning activities on the subject they are teaching.
The parent’s part lies in providing the tools and encouragement that keeps them organized.
There is however an other party to your kids success that isn’t structure or organized but is in need of parents guidance. That is their feelings and thoughts about the school day.
You can help them with that without actually doing much of anything other than giving them the tools they need to capture those feelings. Journals and story type notebooks are good tools that you can provide. They are a great way to encourage the kids to express what is happening in their inner world.
