How to optimize move to a new school for a 2nd grader?
Unfortunately, though, our daughter has been tearful at the thought of not being at her current school with the kids, teachers and school community she's known since kindergarten. Thankfully at the new school, there are 7 kids she's known since she was a baby (they are close family friends), and that's brought some reassurances for her that things are going to be ok.
Do you have other suggestions for how we can optimize this transition for our daughter?
I've read the Education.com article, When Families Move: Helping Children Adjust, by the NYU Child Study Center ( http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_... ), so will be taking that advice into account as well.
What else do you suggest?
