You are probably already working with a morning routine. I created one last year, when my girls were in Pre-K. This year, though, I’ve asked my daughters to get involved in creating a written Morning Schedule.
Kids always do better on a schedule. When I learned Michele Obama taught her girls to wake up and get ready for school when they were in kindergarten, I had to try it with my girls, who were already well into second grade. I have to say, it was much easier than you’d think.
