First day of school! Such an important day in a child’s life, but even though it's exciting, it can also be a tough experience for both parents and kids. It’s fairly common for children to get used to a routine at home before they start school, and going to class for the first time might be hard since they’ll have to get use to a new schedule, new school vocabulary, new habits and and lots of new people.

Teaching children school vocabulary before actually going to school could be of great help for the young learners. This way, they will already master the vocabulary used in the classroom, which in turn will help them feel more confident and in control of the situation.

Also, by learning the school supplies list and vocabulary children will enhance their learning process, they’ll feel more comfortable in class performing the tasks assigned by the teacher, and even more relaxed when interacting with classmates. Plus, learning these new words beforehand will make children eager to start classes and to put all that new knowledge into practice.

Here you’ll find information, activities and games to make learning school vocabulary fun and easy for children.
