Every child is a personality who spends summer vacation according to an "individual" program. Perhaps that's why the transition to school mode for children in September is never easy.

The online publication SSPDaily writes that there are many ways to prepare a child for returning to school without too much trouble. To explore this topic further, the journalists spoke to Rebecca Towner-Yates, a teacher and mother of two living in High Peak, Derbyshire. Here are some tips from a certified teacher on how to seamlessly transition from vacation to school mode.

In particular, Rebecca says, "I've only recently faced this challenge, but when I think about children who start the year successfully, I realize there are a few ways I can help prepare my Matilda and Ted."

She then compared school vacation time to canoeing, "Everything looks much better in the brochures than in real life. The weather is changeable, and of course there are great moments and opportunities to shoot along the way, but sometimes you have to go against the tide and even go hungry."

Rebecca also said that she spent the entire summer preparing the children for school.

"We took a lot of day trips, and to help them take responsibility for themselves, they each had a personal bag with their own clothes and food. They had to keep an eye on their condition and distribute the food properly so that it would last the whole day."

What worries a child on the first day of school?

"Actually," Rebecca said, "it can be anything: for example, losing a pencil or a book can cause serious anxiety."

"At the same time," she adds, "parents should remember that the school routine changes, and it will not necessarily be the same as before the holidays."

"For example, children may have a new teacher or classroom where everything is different and the usual items are in a different place."

Games are a great way to prepare for September

"Ted is learning to take turns, and Matilda is learning what it means to lose and win," Rebecca explains.

The family also discusses what to expect when the children return to school: from uniforms to the route to school and what the classroom will be like.

"We talked about the fact that new teachers would be working with them, what to expect, and that they should not be afraid of change. However, we spent most of our time trying to understand what their strengths were," Rebecca explained.

"And it doesn't matter if it's a love of dinosaurs, basketball skills, an interest in space, or something else. Walking into a classroom with the confidence that you are not only welcome but that you can also bring something positive to the table is the most powerful preparation for learning that I know of," Rebecca states.
