Want to make the most out of the new school year? Follow these back to school tips from L&L Motor Co. to start the year off right for both you and your kids.
Meet the Teachers
For a successful school year, it’s imperative that you form a relationship with your children’s teachers. These are the people with whom your kids will be spending their days, and you need to feel like you can reach out and communicate with them about any questions or concerns throughout the year.
Start a Homework Routine
Create strict but reasonable homework rules day one with your kids. Set aside a special place in your home where you can keep school supplies like paper and pencils. This spot can be used for nothing but homework and studying. Create a specific school work schedule and routine so that it always gets done efficiently and on time.
Plan Healthy Lunches
The better your children are eating, the more they will be able to focus at school. Avoid lunch items high in processed foods and sugars. Plan ahead with your kids to pick items that are healthy and filled with fresh produce and good proteins. Help your kids prepare their lunches and snacks ahead of time each week so you’ll have one less thing to worry about.
As the school year moves forward, make time to show interest in what your children are learning. Check over homework and quiz them for tests. Read books with your children who are learning their reading skills. Your school-positive attitude will set an example that will stick with your kids throughout their entire academic career.
It’s no secret—the Ford F-150 has been America’s favorite truck for decades now. That’s thanks to Ford’s ability to anticipate the consumer’s ever-changing needs and deliver a truck that’s both modern and classically capable. In sticking with tradition, the new 2018 Ford F-150 keeps the recently added aluminum body and other F-150 standards while adding updates fit for the new model year. Here’s what’s changing.
The muscular body of the 2018 F-150 gets a bold updated with a new grille, a new tailgate, and fresh headlights. LED accent lights surround both the high- and low-beam headlights for a distinct design, and separate the upper and lower tail lights as well. The 2018 F-150 also receives an all-new wheel design.
One of the biggest pieces of news regarding the light-duty 2018 Ford F-150 is the first-ever diesel engine option. Ford has yet to release specifications on the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6, but it promises to be a popular option. The revised EcoBoost 2.7-liter V6, the 5.0-liter V8, and the new 3.3-liter V6 will also be available as powertrain options.
Higher trim levels of the 2018 Ford F-150 can be equipped with the premium Bang & Olufsen Stereo System. The available adaptive cruise-control and the forward-collision-warning system are both more intelligent and more autonomous than ever, providing smarter driver-assist technologies. Plus, the newly available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot can quickly turn the 2018 F-150 into a mobile office.
