Help your kiddos get excited for middle school and start the year off right,
Note to Future Self: Students write a note to future self outlining their dreams and goals.
Locker: Let kids create a plan to organize and decorate their locker.
Academics: Discuss study methods and homework strategies. Kids make a plan to tackle homework and study at the next level.
Quotes: Let kids brainstorm quotes that inspire. Who doesn’t love a bit of inspiration?
Summer Reading: Create book share groups or book talks to motivate summer reading!
Extra Curricular: Middle school offers exciting activities. Give kids time to explore their interests and brainstorm possibilities.
Emergency Kit: Have kids make a list of things to keep in case of emergency (I suggest a zip lock baggie to keep in their locker).
