The back-to-school season is right around the corner! The start of another school year is always an exciting and busy time as parents prepare to help their children get back into a school routine. Before the big day arrives, here are some helpful back-to-school tips to ensure your child is ready for another great year!
Make a Back-To-School Checklist
On the first day, your child will need to arrive with basic supplies for their classroom. Teachers will often provide a checklist of needed supplies, but if not, there are several resources online with suggested supplies for each grade level. We suggest pulling up a chair at your kitchen island and taking time to make a list of all the items your child may need!
Stock up on Lunch Snacks
Before heading to the store for back-to-school shopping, it’s important to decide what you want to pack in your child’s school lunches and purchase the ingredients you’ll need. Once you’ve gathered all the desired lunch items, your Traton Homes kitchen offers all the room you’ll need to keep everything organized and stored away neatly! This is the perfect time to take advantage of the abundant cabinet space and the large walk-in pantry.
Create a Focused Homework Space
After school every day, children will need a place to complete their homework. Ideally, this space should be quiet and located away from any potential distractions. Luckily, our homes offer flexible spaces that can be used as a home office or study area tucked away from the primary living areas – the perfect environment for your child to stay focused and productive as they work on their homework!
Organize School Items
In the week leading up to the first day, every family should have a plan for their morning routine. Rather than scrambling to find everything you need and get out the door on the big day, we suggest organizing school items such as shoes and backpacks in a designated spot. How about your home’s convenient mudroom? Complete with hooks, shelves and built-in bench seating, this space can give all school items their own special place. With this convenient feature, you’ll know exactly where to find everything you need before heading out the door!
