It's back-to-school month at Watch Me Grow! We are excited to jump into a new school year and are looking forward to lots of fun with the kids. This month we will be talking about our families, learning our new classroom rules and meeting lots of new friends.

August is Back to School

It's that time of year where summer is winding down and fall is creeping up on us. Time to start thinking about school supplies, uniforms, and lots of paperwork. This is also a great time to build your child's excitement for heading back to school. Remember, when you were really young the summer felt like a lifetime and heading back to school or moving up in a classroom came out of the blue. This is a great time to prepare your child for what's coming in the new school year and to build their excitement. Talk about the fun they are going to have, new friends and old ones. Discussing new routines and changes will help ease any nervousness or anxiety for your little one. Another great way to prepare your kids for moving up to a new class is by reading books with a similar theme. Here is a shortlist of ones we found great (available on Amazon):

  • The Night Before Preschool by Natasha Wing
  • Maisy Goes to Preschool by Lucy Cousins
  • Daniel Goes to School by Becky Friedman
  • Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney
  • The 12 Days of Preschool by Jenna Lettice


It's still hot in Arizona--please remember to apply sunscreen each morning.

Water days will continue this month and come to an end after Labor Day.
