Parent Routines for Elementary Schoolers


Establishing a daily routine for elementary schoolers is key to success. Start the day off right by having them wake up and get dressed, then eat breakfast and brush their teeth. Pack their lunch and help them put on their shoes and coat before they head out the door. Make sure to check their backpack for homework and supplies before they take the bus or walk to school. During the day, they'll attend classes, eat lunch, and participate in after-school activities. When they return home, have them unpack their backpack and do their homework. Eat dinner together, then have them take a bath or shower and read a book before putting on their pajamas and going to bed.
