Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
It seems crazy but back to school season is officially underway. Don’t believe it? Just head to the nearest supermarket or department store or pick up a circular and take in all the back to school shopping deals and sales. For parents, the back to school season does not just mean shopping. There are many other tasks that must be completed before the start of the school year as well. For example, getting the kids’ physicals, completing summer reading lists, filling out forms and paperwork, and getting the kids back into a school-worthy routine. Whew! That’s enough to make any parent break into a sweat!
It isn’t an understatement to say that the back to school season is an exhausting time for parents. With that in mind, Freebie Finding Mom has a few tricks to help reduce the stress and increase the fun…after all, there’s still some summer left to enjoy! Perhaps the most difficult task to be completed is getting the kids into a routine and mentally ready to head back to the classroom (or for some, into the classroom for the first time). To keep the kids entertained and get them excited about the upcoming school year, Freebie Finding Mom shares a printable word search that is back to school themed as well as a printable back to school coloring sheet. These fun activities will get the gears in their minds turning after a summer break.
It isn’t just mom and dad that are facing a lengthy back to school to-do list. Teachers also have a cringe-worthy task list to get through before that first school bell rings. Their list includes preparing their classroom, writing lesson plans, drafting welcome back to school letters, and so much more. To help out these hardworking individuals and give them more time to focus on the little learners, Freebie Finding Mom shares customizable welcome back to school letters. She has created a template for a letter addressed to the student and a template for a letter addressed to the parents.
While the back to school season can be hectic, don’t forget to spend some quality time with the family and kids and enjoy the remaining days of summer. Here’s to a successful 2014 school year!
