Hello lovelies, September is here, it's official, Summer will be ending on September 23rd, 2015. I know sad face, insert here :( ... not to worry there is still so much more time to enjoy with family and friends. Labor day weekend is upon us, and Back to School for the little people in our lives, is back as well.
The routine of getting your kids back on schedule can be a little challenging, but as we all know, saves time and our sanity! Prepare a great place for your children to work in, a nice desk and things that they love surrounding them encourages them to do homework.
We talk about her day, do homework as soon as we get back from school, I check it and then sign my daughter's planner. The school is really great about making the children write down the homework assignments in their planners, and having the parents sign the planner also.
The teacher will tell you if your child needs to be more prepared in a particular subject too! You have to form an active relationship with your child's teacher.
I can recall being in fourth grade starting fractions, and being very confused about the whole thing. I couldn't seem to figure them out. Luckily for me, my Mother enrolled me in a free Summer program at the Chicago Public Library. So when school started back in the Fall, I was less confused.
My little boy just started Kindergarten so luckily for me, I don't have to balance the two parts of homework yet, but he will have to learn the homework routine.The one my daughter already knows! Next give them a snack before dinner, talk some more about homework, life and anything else.
Enjoy September :)
