My best back-to-school tip is to have a "spot" or hook for each child's backpack. That way it can easily be located in the morning when leaving and anything else that needs to go that morning can be set beside the backpack as a reminder. Packing the backpack with completed homework, signed papers, and "show and tell" the night before helps the morning go smoother also.

Both of my children will be attending middle school this year where they will be offering block days: Monday periods 1, 2, and 3, Tuesday periods 4, 5, and 6, etc. My tip is to purchase 2 backpacks so they will have the appropriate materials in each backpack for each block day. Less paper shuffling means less opportunity for misplacement!
