Practice planning and organizing this summer
A great way to practice advance planning and organization this summer is to have your child pack her camp bag each night before going to sleep. Getting her bag ready the evening before will compel her to think through what is going on the following day, and then work backwards to ensure she’s got everything she’ll need. If she wants to take it a step further, she may also choose to start by checking the next day’s weather online to be sure she’s prepared for rain, low temps, or a heat wave. This forward thinking is a skill that will transfer easily to preparing her school bag in the fall.
