Visit the School: Most schools will be open for your child to go and practice going through their schedule. Apart from finding their classrooms, have your child figure out when they will be visiting their locker.
Family Calendar: Either on a physical calendar or on your smartphone and tablet, have your child and other family members begin entering activities and events. They doing this, you and your child will know where everyone is during the day and who will pick up whom from activities.
Tutoring: Some children need a little extra help, scheduling your tutor ahead of time will mentally prepare your child and the tutor for their meeting. Be sure you make it clear to the tutor what you want your child to work on.
