FOR PARENTS: CREATE A BACK-TO-SCHOOL CHECKLIST!
Transitioning back to school takes time. It is important to prepare children for their first day back in the classroom so they can enjoy their experience with low levels of stress.
Use this Back to School Checklist and Learn at Home Checklist to practice skills like getting ready in the morning, packing a backpack, and knowing teachers’ names. Practicing the week before the big day can help relieve anxiety for you and your children.
