Here are some helpful tips on how to make the transition to 4K go smoothly:
*Make sure your child gets lots of sleep at night. Get them to bed at a reasonable time. Reducing stress in the morning can help make the whole day turn out better. Be sure to lay out school clothes at night and give your child plenty of time to eat a healthy breakfast. I know I am not at my best without sleep or breakfast!!
*For the youngest students, missing their parents can be a real concern. Family photos can be a reminder for the nonreaders that their parents will be waiting for them at the end of the day. Please complete and return the scrapbook page that was in your child’s folder. I will make a class book and your child will have access to it throughout the day if they are missing you.
*Keep school positive. Ask your child 3 things they did during school. What was their favorite? Who did they play with? Children this age have a hard time communicating what they did at school. Asking positive questions will help them remember the fun they had that day!
*Practice patience. It may take awhile for your child to adjust to now being in school. They are learning a lot during the day and their brain is filling up with new knowledge! It might take a good month to get in their groove of the school year. Try not to schedule too much.
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or comments, please please please contact me. We are a team and I am looking forward to getting to know your family this year!
