10 Things To Do BEFORE School Starts
A successful school year begins in July. An unsuccessful one begins the first day of classes. Set your child up for success by reviewing his IEP or 504 Plan, developing organization systems with him, communicating with teachers, and more during the summer months.
Create a Home Staging Area
Use an area near the door that your child uses to go to school. Equip it with open cubbies/shelving, baskets and/or hooks. This is home to books, homework, backpack, notes, sports bag, keys, lunches, and other school-related articles. Hang a large white board to help her remember tasks and items. An alarm clock or timer will help her get out the door in time.
