“Mommy, we need to bring these art materials by tomorrow!”

We all dread that time when the teacher suddenly assigns our kids to bring additional art materials to school, apart from the ones required during enrolment. The short notice is a common source of stress for busy, working moms. Now, you need to head to the nearest NBS branch after office. If you’re like this, you’ll find Xandra’s first tip really useful….

The first tip: Plan Ahead by setting up a mini-National Book Store at home. 

Stock up for the supplies your kids will run out of throughout the year, and keep them in a handy storage box for neat organization and easy access.

Teacher: Please label ALL your child’s school bag, notebooks, books, folders, pencils, pencil case, crayons, pad paper, folders, envelopes, lunch box, tumbler, etc.. etc..

As soon as moms finish their back to school shopping, they proceed to the next step: That is to label all their kid’s school stuff with their child’s name, grade level and section, school. If you have multiple children going to school, this task can be very tedious and time-consuming! So most moms, just resort to the simple, generic style of labelling. But still, we’d like to add a bit more fun and creativity to inspire our kids to go to school, isn’t it? Here’s a tip you can use:

The second tip is: Personalize! Get your kid’s school supplies customized to make it truly, uniquely theirs. Pens, pencils, lunch boxes, and tumblers can be easily personalized in selected NBS branches: Glorietta 1, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, and Trinoma.

Additionally, you can follow some more practical advice in order to have a more efficient and fun school year. 

1) Plan ahead your child’s weekly baon menu.

This saves you both time and money. It can be daunting at first, but if you can set aside like 10 to 15 minutes once a week before you do the groceries, it’s your lifesaver the whole week through! Eliminating routine decisions makes better use of our limited time as moms. You also have the opportunity to prepare more nutritious alternatives for his lunch box.

2) Create a personal, quiet space as a study area.

To build an environment conducive for learning, have a dedicated study area at home. It doesn’t have to be a separate room or study table (although that is ideal). A specific time when you can clean the clutter in the dining table so your child can do her homework there is good enough. Just be sure you have storage space for all her school materials so she can pack away efficiently after. 

3) Prioritize advance study duties prior to reviewing today’s lessons.

A strategy known to tutors – that is to prepare the child first for tomorrow’s lessons. That means, tackle advance reading duties so she can cope with the lesson the next day. Let your child understand what she read and be there to guide her if she has questions. What comes after is to review what has been taught in class today.

4) Reward your child not just for getting good grades, but also for sticking to good study habits.

They say praise the effort, not the result. Kids become more encouraged to stick to the after-school routine you have set when you praise and reward them for the effort. Establishing good study habits, a character-building endeavor, is even harder than getting an A in the exams.

5) Allow kids to play first before doing homework.

To help unclog and rewire their brains after a busy day in school, allow your child to play. It frees their mind from anxiety and brain drain. That helps them in gaining more focus and enthusiasm to do their homework.
