My son is now a Pre-Kindergartner. Like their Nursery class last year, they still don’t carry books or even notebooks in their bags. That’s because all the books that the teachers are using to teach the children and all the worksheets or artwork materials that the children use in their classroom activities are provided for by their school. I didn’t buy my son a new bag this school year because his two bags are still okay.
I used to make my son bring this bigger backpack to school during his first months in Nursery class.
When I realized he’s carrying a bag bigger than his back could hold, I took pity and let him use this lunch bag instead. This is what he’s bringing to his Pre-K class every day. Of course, we make it a point to wash this bag during weekends.
There are a number of things inside his lunch bag, namely: (1) an extra shirt, (2) an extra towel/ultra absorbent cloth for his back, (3) extra briefs just in case he wets or accidentally soils the one he’s wearing, (4) a diaper (this is force of habit; I keep forgetting he’s already fully potty-trained), (5) a bib for when he has colds or when he needs to wipe his mouth after eating, and (6) his snacks.
