Welcome back to the #LMMLinkup this week where we are focusing on the back to school season. Last week we had a number of great resource posts for starting the school year linked up.
As you prepare, here are a few tips to think about.
- If you send your child to public school or private school, be sure to check your school’s website or district website for important school supplies lists.
- If you want to know what your child is learning this year, your district or school websites are great resources. One resource my district website shares is the Family-Friendly Guide to South Carolina Academic Standards. If you homeschool, checking out your state’s standard resources will help guide you in preparing lesson plans as well ensure that your student is learning on the same pace as public school students. Standard guides also include great links to resources for learning that you can direct your student to when they are working on projects and assignments.
- Put a prayer and verse card in your child’s book bag in the mornings before she heads off to school. If you homeschool, tape the card to your student’s work desk.
- Don’t forget to pray with your child on the first day of school. Let your child lead the prayer and express their goals for the new year.
What are you tips for starting off the school year. Be sure to linkup your great posts related to back to school. Also leave your tips in the comment area below.
We will have an exciting guest post next week on preparing for Back-to-School. I hope you come back next week and check it out.

Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!
This post lists some great resources for homeschoolers, but I found it useful too even though I send my daughter to public school. Some of the ideas can be modified for a homework center.
My Favorite Post of the Week
This guest blog post by Kelly R. Baker on Debbie’s blog really inspired me this week. It is so uplifting and encouraging. I loved this quote: “What I need to pray are His promises.” She includes great verses to pray here and then concludes with this thought: “Just like that, the weight of my problems roll into His capable hands.” Also I recommend you check out Kelly’s The Daily Time with God Challenge.
