Helping Children Get Back into “School Mode” (Teaching Tip #74)

Written by

Over the past few years I have uploaded approximately twenty instructional videos on YouTube. These videos range from 1-6 minutes in length and deal primarily with academic tips and study strategies. I am excited to announce that I have re-designed my page on the site, and I am officially re-launching it as the “Teaching Kids” channel. All of my new “Teaching Kids” videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.

This week’s Teaching Tip features my first new video since the re-design, and it is called “Teaching Kids to Transition Back into ‘School Mode.’ ” Click here to watch.
If you are interested in being notified anytime I upload a new video, please add yourself as a subscriber to my channel.

In this short video I share a few tips to help parents ease their children's transition back to school. Topics include re-establishing routines, re-focusing on academics, and shopping for school supplies.

This tip is also part of a “Back to School Sweepstakes” in which Volunteer Spot, a website that helps teachers coordinate with parents and volunteers, is offering entrants a chance to win an ipad and $500 for their favorite school.
