1. Mental preparation - Proud to grow
Stepping from kindergarten to elementary school is a major turning point in children's physical and mental development. It is a test for both children and parents. In terms of psychology, children should feel that "being a primary school student is a very proud thing."
When chatting with your children, you should consciously talk about elementary school students and school matters, and tell your children the benefits of going to school, such as getting to know many new friends and learning more knowledge. Encourage and appreciate the child more, and sincerely congratulate the child when he grows up.
For example: "Today's toys are so clean and tidy, like a primary school student!" Let the children feel the pride of growing up, which will produce the emotion of envy of primary school students and yearning for primary school life. Before entering school, you can take your child to visit the elementary school, so that the strangeness of the child will not be too strong after school.Prepare tables and chairs of suitable height for your children.
The height of the chair is generally suitable for the child's feet to be flat on the ground; the height of the table should be exactly the height of the child's heart after sitting down; the tabletop should not be light or bright color that can reduce the concentration; the position of the table is best Place it facing the wall, and don’t have any stickers on the wall that can easily distract children.
2. Physical preparation - Sit enough for three quarters of an hour
The study life in elementary school is very different from that in kindergarten, both the school time and the intensity of study will be extended and enhanced.
When many children go to kindergarten, they don't have to go when they are sick, but if they keep getting sick after or before going to elementary school, they will definitely miss the benefits of being at school, therefore, before going to elementary school, it is necessary to ensure that your children have adequate nutrition and rest to reduce the impact of diseases on their physical and mental health.
Lead the children to do some exercises and strengthen their physique actively, and be able to listen to the lecture for 45 minutes without feeling tired. In addition, you should take your child to the hospital for a physical examination before entering school to ensure that the child is healthy and enters school.
3. Prepare children for safety education - Game safety
Primary school activity devices are tall and big, the venue is hard, and there are many students. The teacher cannot take care of the students at any time. Therefore, you must tell the children to observe order during the inter-class activities as soon as possible, do not push, do not run madly, do not throw stones or play wooden sticks.
Pick-up and drop-off safety. Parents should make arrangements with their children in advance about the pick-up and drop-off location, also ask the children to wait there while parents not there yet, and tell them not to run around, not to go with others, and also to discuss with the parents first when going to or with the classmates.
Safety on the way to and from school. Parents take their children to the school for several walks in advance, repeating the key points and road signs and safety precautions each time; educate children to pay attention to problems such as vehicles, strangers, and companion games; keep in mind the principle of "go home after school and do not talk to strangers."
Food hygiene and safety. Educate children not to buy food from the stalls; wash hands before and after meals; drink only from your own cup; don’t rub around if your hands are dirty when doing eye exercises.
Take special care of the children
No one should offend the area covered by the pants and vest; try not to play with naughty boys. Just in case, it's best to prepare an IP phone card for your child and teach him how to use it, so that you can get in touch with your parents during extraordinary times.
4. Ability preparation - Focus
The attention of the early childhood stage is mainly attracted by the novel and interesting things in the environment. When elementary school students are in class, they need to consciously control themselves and direct their attention to the teacher.
In response to this change, starting from the kindergarten class, teachers and parents should pay attention to cultivating children's self-control ability and improve children's attention level. The cultivation of attention begins when children go to kindergarten. Parents and teachers should consciously arrange appropriate meditation training so that children can learn to concentrate.
Many times, parents or teachers will unconsciously interrupt children who are playing and distract them. Over time, it becomes difficult for children to concentrate.
5. Habit preparation - regular life schedule
Kindergartens do not have strict rules on school hours, so they are relatively free. And to go to elementary school, you must strictly abide by the schedule of elementary school, therefore, parents should understand the schedule of the primary school's work and rest one year in advance, and adjust the child's work and rest time based on this time.
Gradually let children adapt to the life of going to bed early and getting up early, and let them develop habits such as getting up on time, eating breakfast, and washing.
At the same time, your child must know how to organize appearance and keep it tidy, like he/she will organize my schoolbags, desks and pencil cases. Let the children develop the habit of eating breakfast regularly.
6. Material preparation - Don't bring too much stationery
Purchase the necessary learning supplies and daily necessities for your children, such as school bags, stationery boxes, rulers, pencils, erasers, and colored pens.
When preparing, don't pursue style and quantity too much, just enough to use. Like a pencil, you can prepare 3 HB type. Parents should introduce to their children the use and usage of various learning tools, especially the use of erasers, and tell them that they should not rely too much on erasers and should think about it before writing.
In addition, let the children know how to cherish all school supplies. At the same time, clothing, shoes, hats and other daily necessities should be comfortable, simple and practical.
7. Preparation of learning environment at home - Children like and respect parents who are educated, studious, and civilized.
Parents’ interest in learning will affect their children’s learning interests to a certain extent, thereby indirectly affecting their children’s academic performance.
When children grow up in an environment full of learning atmosphere, it is easy to form a conscious learning action in priceless, therefore, parents should take the lead in loving learning, forming a family tradition, and nurturing their children with their own words and deeds.
Provide children with a stable learning location.
The child has a seat in school, Its main function is to form a learning position orientation. Whenever after the child sits in a habitual place, I think of learning as a conditioned reflex, so we must prepare a small independent learning space for the child, it can be a corner of the room or a separate room, focusing on quietness and cleanliness.
