The passion with which she pours knowledge into these kids, you sef will be wondering “is it not just primary school. Is it even that serious?” Well, to her it is. And it is with that passion she has come to give these tips on getting your young ones ready for school post-festive season. Ladies and gentlemen, Miss Ify Ezefula!!
Hi everyone!😁 Hope we are preparing well for the new year. Our children have spent another two weeks plus playing, eating and above all travelling. They can be so engrossed with these festivities and resuming back to school life could be overwhelming for parents and even children.
Below are some tips to help parents ease into the school routine after the Christmas Breaks.
1. Establish a night time routine
Encourage them to go to bed early few days before school resumes because organized school mornings start from the night before, children can help out to get their shoes and socks ready before going to bed.
2. Establish routines for the kids
Switching from a holiday to a school schedule can be stressful for everyone in the household. Avoid first-day-of-school mayhem by practicing your routine a few days in advance. Routines help children feel comfortable. Establishing a solid school routine will make the first day of school go much smoother. So you can create a visual timetable for each child.
3. Mend uniforms
At least, a week before resumption, do a full audit of uniforms to make sure our children have enough of everything and check if anything needs mending or buying.
Due to the rate of growth of kids and also much food consumed during the festive period, it’s possible that they have gained some weight. Quick checks before school resumes will you help save the situation
4. Then finally, Chat with the children about today’s events and tomorrow’s plans. Children need some down time before the rigors of school begin. For some kids – minute drills can heighten anxiety, reminding them of what they’ve forgotten instead of what they remember so I think we should engage their children in these drills.
So people, I hope you find this helpful. You can also share in the comments what to you think can be added and would be helpful. See you in school in a few weeks. 😉
