Get Your Student Ready for the New School Year

There is no other time of the year that a student enjoys the most than summer vacation. Whether they spend the entire time with their friends, family, camp, or a mixture of them all, they likely enjoyed their summer break. However, as the summer months come to an end, it’s time for all parents and students to begin preparing for the new school year. With this in mind, The Tutoring Center, Greer SC has the following tips to help.

What Do You Need?

Many parents make the mistake of simply combining their regular trip to the supermarket with their back-to-school shopping. As easy as this approach may seem, it results in nothing short of frustrated parents who either purchased the incorrect items or need to return to the store to purchase items which they forgot. Sit down with the students in your home and have them imagine what each of their classes is going to be like. Have them think about any projects they can be expected to do, whether the class involves a lot of note taking, or whether it requires them to be creative. As they think about each of their classes, have them write down the equipment they imagine themselves using. A pen, notebook, and ruler for a note taking class, some colored markers for a creative class, and perhaps a selection of measurement tools for a math class. Once they have finished their lists, look for items which are almost identical. For example, despite what your student might tell you, the color of their notebook isn’t the end of the world. With this in mind, you can save money (and time) by buying a large set of general sized notebooks.

Make Shopping a Lesson

Like it or not, there will soon be a time when your student will need to fend for themselves and manage their own budget without you. Take this year as an opportunity to introduce them to budgeting and how you look for ways to keep your costs down. Start by providing them with a budget and asking each of your students to look for ways to save money. On top of being a great life lesson, it will also keep their basic math brains active as they calculate savings.
