The school year is quickly approaching! While it may be challenging to say goodbye to summer, there are fun, creative ways to get the kids excited for back-to-school. In preparation for the new school year, AllPosters.com offers up a few simple, affordable ways to get kids in the school spirit:
From Nairobi to Naples, help your kid become a geography pro while giving the study room a fresh update with these unique maps from around the world.
Declutter the Workspace
De-clutter your kid’s desk with a simple filing system, drawer organizers, and color-coding for different subjects. To prevent loose papers and items from piling up, put anything from previous school years into storage. Update a monthly calendar to reflect upcoming assignments, group projects, and after-school activities. With a clean slate and an inviting desk area, homework will seem like less of a chore.
Find creative ways to keep your kids motivated throughout the school year, including exploring new hobbies, spending time outdoors, and setting goals on a monthly basis. Motivational posters, inspirational wall decals and surprise notes of encouragement in your kid’s lunchbox are also great daily reminders to stay the course and remain positive.
Channel Back-to-School Cool
Kick off the school year with fun accessories. From backpacks to lunch boxes to t-shirts, there are plenty of ways to help your kid showcase his/her personality through new gear. At home, opt for posters of their favorite music, movies, TV shows, and video games to update their space without breaking the bank.
Celebrate Little Wins
Acknowledge accomplishments regularly to keep your kids positive and engaged throughout the school year. Whether it’s a day at the waterpark or celebratory ice cream over the weekend, find ways to reward your kids for their hard work. Framing or posting exceptional progress reports, certificates of accomplishment and awards on a bulletin board also helps commemorate your child’s achievements and successes, helping them keep their eye on the ball throughout the year.
