Children’s Activity: Back to School Planner

Back to School

As we prepare for the return to school, everyone’s mind is in different places. For some, they cannot wait to get back and see their friends, for others, they feel the summer needs to be 12 weeks (not 6), for others there is excited apprehension as they prepare for transitions, unsure about what will come next.

It does not matter how many years go by, or how many transitions we experience, first day nerves are always a thing for so many of us. However, with some planning and repeating actions, we can make our brains feel safer. So much of our nerves, is actually uncertainty about what will happen and feeling unprepared.

So, we are sharing our back to school planner to create a little safety and planning.
