As students and parents alike prepare for the start of the school year, we have some tips to help make the transition easier, thanks to Brainly – an organization described as the world’s larged peer-to-peer learning community of students, parents, and teachers. They say you should:
– Develop a sleep routine now to get your bodies adjusted for waking up early
– Establish “school routines” to adjust to the hours you’ll be keeping during the school day, including homework time at night
– Start giving your brain a workout by completing online quizzes and games. It’s estimated that kids can lose up to a month’s worth of instruction over the summer.
Many parents in our area may already have a head start on this. Brainly ranks Missouri parents as the most prepared in the nation for the start of school.
