1) Get them a backpack that they like

It is always important to be prepared when you have to go back to school. This means that you need a good backpack. A good backpack should meet a few criteria: it should be durable, have plenty of compartments, and be large enough for all of your books. Just as clothes are one way for a child to express themselves, a backpack can also be a great way for them to express themselves too. So why not let them pick out one they like? This could include Fjallraven backpack (which was originally meant for kids), but this could just extend to a back that has their favorite TV or comic book character on it.

2) Plan out the first day of school with them and make it fun

This is the first day of school, and it’s really important. The first day sets the tone for the whole year, so it needs to be fun and engaging to make sure students are excited about going to school again tomorrow. Whether it’s Faith Academy, or any other school, just make sure that this can be something really fun for them. The first day for children can be really scary, so it’s best to hype them up. If you want to explore different options for your child, don’t be afraid to look into virtual charter schools as well.

3) Buy some new clothes that area appropriate for the new season and weather

You can’t let the seasonal change catch you unprepared. Make sure to update your child’s wardrobe with some new clothes that are appropriate for the new season and weather. While shopping for clothes can be boring, children do love getting to have a say in what they wear. Plus, this can also be a way to get them all hyped up for school as well. So make sure you let them choose.

4) Purchase a planner or agenda for their use in class

It’s vital that kids learn about staying organized, so why not get them a little planner? Usually, kids don’t have phones or else they’re not permitted in the classroom. So getting an old fashion planner or agenda booklet for them can be a great idea.

5) Make a list of all their favorite food so they have something to look forward to lunchtime

If you take your kid grocery shopping with you, and you buy their favorite snacks and foods, let them know that this is going to be their lunch when they go back. This alone is going to hype them up. You can even go as far as getting them a new lunch box to help hype them up too. Sure, the school system does have food options, but it’s not always the best, so why not pack up some food for them?
