A new school year is coming up—have you made your new school year’s resolution yet?
For many households, there are two “new years” every year that give us an opportunity to start fresh and get organized: one on January 1st, and the other when the kids go back to school. Here are five tips to help your family get the new school year off to a great start.
1. Get school supplies that last.
Your child has a new year of serious learning to do—the last thing they need is for their school supplies to fall apart on them. So do your homework and look for quality backpacks with warranties, reusable lunch bags, and school supplies built to last, such as Avery Binders and Avery Durable Write-On Plastic Dividers.
2. Make a weekly plan.
Ever feel like once the week starts, the days seem to go by so fast? Before the start of each week, get together with the kids to plan each week’s activities so everyone knows what lies ahead. The Avery Dry Erase Weekly Calendar makes it easy to schedule upcoming test days, field trips and after-school appointments, and the surface can be wiped clean and reused again and again.
3. Create customized study tools.
From learning the alphabet and simple math problems to vocabulary words and history facts, flash cards can be a great study aid for students of all ages. Avery Flash Cards come in a variety of styles and can be customized with our free templates and pre-designs on avery.com/flashcards, including educational content provided by Teacher Created Resources, a recognized name in educational publishing, which provides content created by teachers, for teachers.
4. Mark their belongings.
When your kids go off to school, make sure what’s theirs stays theirs—and their stuff is easy to return if misplaced or lost. Label their personal belongings such as binders and lunch boxes with these cute and quirky “property of” labels, and their personal books with these unique bookplates.
5. Take plenty of notes!
