A new school year is coming up—have you made your new school year’s resolution yet? The start of a new school year, much like January 1st, is an opportunity for many households to start fresh and get organized. Here are five tips to help your family get this new school year off to a great start.
1. Get school supplies that last.
Your child has a brand 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 that are built to last.
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. Mark their personal Belongings.
When your kids go off to school or daycare, make sure what’s theirs stays theirs—and make their things easier to return should items become misplaced or lost. Label their lunch boxes, water bottles, and even sports gear with Avery Kids Labels, a line of durable and water-resistant labels to identify personal belongings most likely to go MIA.
4. 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.
5. Support your school with Box Tops!
