Make Sure Your Child is Ready for School

If your child will be heading out to school for the first time this fall, it is important that both of you are prepared. Being academically prepared to enter school for the first time gets most of the attention, but make sure your child is ready to take part in a whole new dynamic. Here at The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow, we can help you make sure your child's transition into school is smooth and successful.

Talk About School

A child might experience some anxiety when thinking about heading out to school for the first time. While a bit of anxiety is normal in these types of situations, do your best to reduce their stress. Talk to your child about school and answer all their questions about it. Discuss how the school-day works, who their teacher will be and what types of things to expect. Answering your child's questions about this new place will make them feel at ease and ready to take on this new adventure.

Get to Know the School

Take your child on a field trip to the school they will be attending. Even if there are no children around when you take your child, it will help them get to know the place and be more comfortable with it. Walk around the space and get to know the different areas so that your child isn't uncomfortable on the first day. Check with the school about any summer activities your child can join in to get better acquainted with the school and the teachers.

Value Your Child's Opinion

A great way to get your child excited about school is by letting them choose their supplies. Let your child choose a backpack and lunchbox that they can get excited about. Having something that reflects their personality will get them excited to use it. Have your child help you plan their lunch. Allowing your child to help will get them more excited for lunchtime and eager to get to school. The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow provides one-on-one tutoring sessions to help target the areas your child needs extra help with.
