Routines Help Everyone

Hello Northwood families!

I hope everyone had a great summer, hard to believe it is already over! As we end our second week of our school year, students have developed a good grasp on classroom and school routines. Routines help eliminate the unknown while giving structure to those who benefit most from it. Transitioning back and forth from home to school has a way of disrupting routines as well, but...there is a way to bend that bridge! When students know there will be routines at home and school they become more comfortable with that structure. Here are some resources to help develop routines with kiddos!
