As the summer comes to an end, it also signifies the beginning of something else… a new school year. It seems like just yesterday school was out for summer, but as each week passes the reality starts to slowly set in. A new school year may bring nervous jitters and slight sadness for students, but it also brings the desire to get ahead and stay productive for teachers. Since we know teachers have a lot to prepare for before the children arrive, we thought we could help make things easier. Below we have created a back to school checklist for your classroom and showcased a few of our favorite school supplies that the kids are sure to love.
