So the back to school season is in full swing! I seriously can not believe how fast the summer flew by. My son started kindergarten last week and J’s son started this week. It’s been a big transition for both us and them. So far the kids are doing well. I will say the early mornings are kinda of kicking my arse (seriously I’m not a morning person, hell I’m pretty sure my brain doesn’t wake up fully until after 10am) but I’m working on this whole getting to sleep early, packing lunch, and waking up early thing. LOL
While we were getting them ready to head back to school, we came across some awesome children’s books and also a few helpful deals that we thought were cool. Peep the links below. 🙂
I have a majority of these stories. They’re sweet, fun, and my son enjoys them.
Planet Kindergarten by Sue Ganz-Schmitt
Kindergarten, Here I Come by D.J. Steinberg
Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten by Joseph Slate
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn
If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff
Countdown to Kindergarten by Alison McGhee
Curious George’s First Day of School by H. A. Rey
Why did this not exist before?! Seriously Amazon School Lists is a nifty little section on Amazon where you put in your zip code and/or the name of you child’s school and you’ll be able to pull up the schools suggested school supply list. You can also search by your child’s grade. You can select from the list and add to your cart. BOOM simplicity at it’s finest.
Target $1 Section
Target is probably my favorite store evah!!!! The $1 section is a little bit of nirvana for me. Right now they have flash Cards, workbooks, character pencils, reward stickers, and heck even snacks and reusable lunch containers.
School Lunch Ideas
I know school lunch can be hit or miss and when you have a picky kid it can be even harder. If I gave my kid a bowl of fruits and a PB&J and he’d be good, but I need to give him variety. So for the days I will pack lunch, I found these awesome sites.
How is back to school treating you and your little ones? 🙂
