Organize school systems together.

Visit an office supply store and check out the materials designed for organizing papers, supplies, and time. Choose systems that will be easy enough for your child to manage at school and at home.

Stock up on school supplies.

Assume that your child will eventually need poster board or a protractor. Buy notebooks and pencils, and store them where you can easily find them later.

To get a sense of the projects your child will need supplies for, talk with the parent of a child who’s one grade ahead of yours.
