Back to School Breakfast on Studio 5 KSL

My family just returned from a road trip to Wyoming to attend my husband’s family reunion. On the way home we stopped in Salt Lake City, and I paid a visit to Studio 5 on KSL-TV.

Worksheet Wednesday: School Handwriting

Tons of FREE printable worksheets @PagingSupermom site

Yikes! My boys have Meet Your Teacher this Friday — summer went WAY too fast! Technically we are ready for school to start: I’m prepared for our traditional back-to-school breakfast; I’ve washed and pressed their new school uniforms, and we’ve even pre-packed their new backpacks. But the reality is, we are not ready… We want MORE play time! So, in an attempt to get Harrison excited for kindergarten (kindergarten!!!??!), we’ve been doing a worksheet every day this week together. Since this worksheet included a backpack, Harrison loved it.

Use this back-to-school worksheet to help your little ones get a bit of writing practice before the first day of school! Or even give it to your preschoolers to keep them busy while your older Superkids prepare for the upcoming school year.

Back to School Photo Tips

The first day of school is a big photo opp for parents, so I thought we’d share some of our tried and true tips for getting the best out of your family’s pictures.

It’s smart to do a little prep work so the morning of the first day is a breeze.

1. Have your child help pick out a favorite outfit ahead of time and be sure to set it aside — this point might seem obvious but if you’ve got little ones who are excited to wear new school clothes, this step could save a lot of hassle on the first day.

2. Take your kids in for a fresh haircut. Have you heard about the new Online Check-In App from Great Clips? It’s a free app that can save time by helping you locate your nearest salon and add your family to the wait list. For every download of the FREE app, Great Clips has pledged to donate to the Adopt a Classroom cause. Go here to learn more.

3. Be sure to download and print out our free, fill-in photo signs for your kiddos to hold in their pictures.
