Guides from psychologists and educators to help your child successfully adapt to school, and you to the role of a parent of a student.
The last summer before the first grade - soon the whole family will adapt to school. A lot depends on how it goes through: the child's health, self-esteem, motivation, and finally, educational achievements.
We bring to your attention five books that will help you calmly prepare for this period.
1. "Adaptation of parents to school", Anna Miroshina
Yes, the first book on the list is not about children, and this is no coincidence. We all know how important it is to start with ourselves in order to achieve something from others. Moms and dads go to school with their child, they have a new role, and it is worth knowing in advance how to better cope with it.
The author of the book, a teacher with great experience, knows firsthand what he is writing about. After reading the book, you will understand how to find your place in the "Child - parent - modern school" system. Typical mistakes of moms and dads are also not ignored. You will find out how the lack of coordination of requirements for a student from family members or overestimated ambitions of parents can affect both the attitude towards learning and the psychological climate at home. The book will help you bypass the pitfalls of adaptation and gain confidence in your abilities as a parent of a student.
Despite the name, Parent-to-School Adaptation also talks a lot about children - or rather, how moms and dads can interact with them to help them get up to speed in school, stay motivated to learn, and do well in school.
2. “Nails for the school. Top-10 skills of a future first grader ", Svetlana Dmitrieva
Another book from an insider. The author has worked at school for many years and knows this reality well from the inside. The book tells about the skills that a child desperately needs in the very first days of school: it is they that largely determine whether a first grader will be able to successfully integrate into school life.
This top 10 is compiled from observations of more than 2,000 schoolchildren. In it you will find not only quite obvious points, such as orientation in space or the ability to follow instructions. Have you ever thought about the importance of timing in adapting to school? What does it mean to be “adult-oriented” and why is it important? The author convincingly shows how these and other skills help a first grader feel comfortable at school. And offers practical tips, games and exercises to develop them.
And what have the nails to do with it? Let's keep the intrigue, let's just hint that this is a pervasive metaphor that permeates the entire book.
3. "School: everything will work out!", Elena Lutkovskaya
The book tells about how a modern school works, what awaits a child in it, how parents can help a first grader.
You will understand the issues that are not always clear to a person far from school: for example, what is an individual educational route and whether your child may need it. The book does not pay much attention to the adaptation period itself. However, the topics that the author touches upon are very important in order to build a strategy for the interaction of the family with the educational institution.
The author gives recommendations on how to relate your personal values to the requirements of the school, how to relate to grades, how to behave in the event of conflict in the classroom and in many other situations.
4. "How to survive in elementary school", Elena Pervushina
Despite the gloomy title, the book is aimed precisely at providing first-graders with the opportunity not to survive, but to enjoy life at school. And here the help of parents is invaluable.
The book will tell you what you need to pay attention to in the behavior of your first grader in order to understand whether he is successfully adapting to school: whether he has appeared inattentiveness, increased fatigue, irritability or other alarming symptoms. You will learn how to communicate with teachers and build relationships with the parents of other children so that peace reigns in the classroom.
5. "Your first grader", Evgenia Lepeshova
Like the other books on our list, Your First Grader has a practical focus. The book contains recommendations, tests, and exercises, which means that you can immediately apply what you read about.
In addition to general topics, the author raises the issues of adaptation of hyperactive and sluggish children, six-year-olds and seven-year-olds, right-handers and left-handers. You will be able to see the risk zones in advance and understand whether the school load can significantly affect the health or mental state of the child, whether there is a danger of difficulties in learning or getting used to the team.
Much in the content of the books presented overlaps, and this is natural, because they have the same goal - to give a successful start to a family on the doorstep of school. However, each of the works has its own flavor and unique advice. And most importantly, they are all written by people who sincerely care that both the children and their parents are encouraged by the school positive emotions and a desire to learn.
Happy adaptation to school!
