We are excited to start the school year and cannot wait to see your kids! As we are transitioning into the school year, we might find that our kids need a little extra support with their transition. Check out this article for more tips on how to help your child: Back to School Tips for Parents .
If you need any extra school supplies, please reach out to me and let me know how I can support your child, as we have extra backpacks and supplies to start the year off right.
Books that help with the transition back
Many students feel anxious either from moving schools, classrooms, a new teacher, being separated from parents or from the challenge of work. As a parent it can be stressful and challenging to see your child adapt to these changes. Try some of these fun books that may touch on the issues you see your child struggling with:
1. Second Grade Holdout by Audrey Vernick
2. I Don’t Want to Go to School by Nancy Pando & Kathy Voerg
3. The Invisible String by Patrice Karst & Geoff Stevenson
4. Wilma Jean the Worry Machine by Julia Cook
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions that you have, as I am happy to help!
