After spending a year or more schooling virtually from home, many kids will be transitioning back to in-person learning this fall. 

It will not only have an impact on kids but also on parents. 

As a mom that had two of her girl’s school at home, I have already been getting ready for what lies ahead. 

From changing our schedules and daily routine to meal planning, there is a lot that we will have to change when transitioning back to in-person learning. 

Tips on Transitioning Back to In-Person Learning

  • Reset the Alarms: When my girls schooled virtually they would normally wake up 30 minutes before class started. They were not too concerned about how their hair looked or if they had on the same clothes as the day before. Knowing they were going to wake up 30 minutes before school started they also had a tendency to go to bed much later. With that said, in order to make the back-to-school in-person learning transition easier, you need to readjust everyone’s alarms and reconfigure the kid’s sleep schedule so they become accustomed to their new lifestyle. It will be difficult at first but their bodies and minds will quickly accept the new change. 
  • Back to School Clothes: If your kids schooled at home over the past year, then like me, you probably saved a lot of money on school clothes. My girls had a tendency to wear the same shirts with pajama bottoms as they schooled and they barely wore shoes. With that said, it is important to evaluate your child’s entire wardrobe because most likely they grew and will need back-to-school clothes that do not include pajama bottoms. 
  • Get Up and Move: Since my girls have schooled at home they have become unmotivated when it comes to exercising and leaving their rooms, beds, and workspaces. A few weeks before school starts, schedule a time each day to go on family walks, go to the park, or do anything that removes your kids from the environment that they have created and become accustomed to. Doing this will help them transition back to in-person learning and will also help tremendously if they have to take classes such as gym or athletics. 
  • Health Checks: Before in-person school begins I would consider taking your kids to their annual health check with their pediatrician along with a vision test. Not only do you want to make sure that they are physically ready to go back to school but mentally ready. In addition, since kids that schooled virtually were on the computer for most of the day, then it would be wise to make sure that their vision has not changed for the worse. 
  • Lunches/Snacks: While my girls schooled at home they survived primarily on noodles and peanut butter crackers. Even though I provided quite a bit of lunch options they opted for easy. Now that my kids will be going to in-person school I will be able to pack their lunch with healthy food options along with fun and feel-good options. 

One of my favorite items to pack in my girl’s lunch are Little Bites® snacks. These snacks put a smile on my girl’s faces and on mine. They contain no high fructose corn syrup and have zero grams of trans fat per serving. My girls love that there are 8 varieties to choose from.

After being schooled at home for over a year, my girls are slightly nervous about transitioning back to in-person learning, but as their mom, I know they will easily adjust but I also know if we didn’t prepare accordingly that they would struggle. 

As parents, it is important that we remember that with love and encouragement, your kids will transition back to in-person learning much easier, which in turn will help you adjust easier as well.

  1. Make lunches and pick out clothing the night before.

    One of my tips would be to have clothes and lunches ready the night before. It always saves me so much time.

  3. I posted a comment but I do not see it so I am posting it again not sure if it has to be approved before it appears. My best back-to-school tip is to be organized and stick to a schedule even on the weekends.

  5. Start bed time and morning routines that you’ll do during the school year a week or so before school actually starts to allow for a smoother transition.

    Prepare things the night before

  7. The closer my kids get to summer break ending, is normally when I try to get them back into the habit of going to bed at a decent time. WIth the older kids its roughly the same time around 10pm, but with the little kids we try to aim more toward 8pm.
