Children who have regular routines at home to organize their belongings will be better prepared for school.
The first thing children learn at school is to put away their jackets and backpacks in their cubbies. The best way to prepare them for this new responsibility is by practicing these organizational skills at home. One fun and cute way to do this is by having wall hooks in their room that they love and can easily access. Your children will be proud of their new organizational skills, and they will really appreciate getting compliments for a job well done. Not only will you be happy not to pick their stuff off the floor!!, but you are truly helping them develop important executive functioning skills to be successful and confident when they start school.
