Back to School Again by The Broward Tutor

This blog is written for your children, so please share it with them!

It’s that time again. You are probably feeling excited, nervous, sad that summer is over, – perhaps all three feelings are going through you at the same time!

Here are some back to school tips to help you get off to a great start.

• Smile, greet your teacher, and introduce yourself.
You will be doing your teacher a favor, because he or she is trying to memorize the names of all of their students. You will be remembered in a positive way because you are polite!

• Remember, teachers are as nervous as the students on the first day of school, so take your seat right away, and be ready for what’s next.

• The night BEFORE school starts, pack up your backpack, lay out your clothes/accessories, and make your lunch. It will keep your first morning relatively stress-free!

• Ask questions if you are confused.

For new 6th graders:

• Look at a map of the school to see where your classrooms are.

• If you don’t have all of your supplies yet, at least bring a notebook/agenda and a pencil. Write down the most important things –  like your teacher’s names, classroom numbers, bathroom locations, where your assigned seats are, and when your lunch period is.

• Look sharp. This will make you feel more positive about yourself.

• Try to be friendly to everyone. You will be happy to see some familiar faces, but it’s a great time to meet new people too! You may meet kids that have similar interests and talents.

• If you are lost, don’t panic! Get up the nerve to ask an older student or any adult.
All sixth graders are new, so no one knows where they’re going!

• Smile and look like you know what you are doing, no one will know the difference.

• Keep a sense of humor!

• By the middle of the week you will know your way around and have adjusted to your new routine.

It’s going to be a GREAT year!
