Start School Schedule Before School Starts

My mother always started having us go to bed at "school night" times about 2 weeks before it started and getting up at "school morning" times. Then she'd have us write a short paper (usually only one page) to get our minds on track. The rest of the day would be regular summer things, but bed time, wake up time, and the short paper got us started in the school thoughts.

Your mom sounds like a peach. I'm sure your teachers appreciated the support from home.

A good way to get back into the swing of the school year is some practice runs before school starts. Start by putting the kids to bed at school bed time a few weeks before school starts to get them used to it again. In the morning, set the alarm and start the routine as if school was in then either, mental note: this is where we would leave or actually get in the car to go somewhere just to get everyone on schedule again
