The Skills Kids Need for School

With a classroom full of students, teachers don't have enough hands to help all of the children get their coat on or open their lunch box. Here are ways to help your child learn skills he needs to be more independent.

The Jacket Flip

  1. Lay the unzipped jacket on its back on the floor with sleeves spread out a bit. Have your child stand behind the top of the jacket.
  2. Show her how to bend or kneel down and put her hands in the armholes.
  3. Have her lift her arms straight up over her head, and they'll naturally slip down into the sleeves -- and the jacket will be on.
