Now that the school year has come to an end, your children are probably looking forward to the freedom of summer. Often, this freedom translates into late nights and a sleep schedule that is thrown out of whack. It may not seem like a big deal for your child to stay up late. After all, they don’t have school the next morning so what does it matter if they’re up past their bedtime? While it certainly won’t hurt for your child to stay up late occasionally, many kids lose track of their bedtime all together. There can be negative consequences for this lack of consistency, so it’s important to find a balance between summer fun and getting enough rest.
With the current school year coming to a close, next school year is probably the last thing on your mind. However, now is the perfect time to decide where to continue your child’s education. Whether you’re moving, had negative experiences at your current school, or are just looking for a change, transitioning to a new school can be tough for both you and your child.
Learning to read is a process that takes much more time than many people think. You don’t learn to read in kindergarten and have it all figured out when you reach first grade. It takes time and practice to become a great reader. Because of this, your student may struggle with reading at some point. It’s important to note that this is normal and usually isn’t cause for serious concern.
While the school year may be wrapping up for your older kids, it’s actually time to start thinking about where your Kindergartener will begin their education next school year. It’s an important decision which requires a lot of time and research, so it’s best to get a head start on the process now. There are many things to consider when deciding what school will be the best fit for your child.
