The first of September will give our students not only a lot of new experiences, acquaintances and knowledge, but also a great many textbooks, notebooks, books, stationery. In order to curb all this paper and stationery reality and at the same time not to cause harm to health, it is necessary to take care in advance of choosing a successful accessory for school supplies in all respects.
The main backbone consists of three models-a briefcase, backpack and satchel, of course, there are still options with business bags and shoulder bags, but this is all for older students. And so:
Briefcase one of the varieties of school bags, which can have both hard and soft shape, comfortable handle attached to the top of the briefcase. Often, the briefcase does not have straps to wear on the back, which makes it very difficult for a child to use it. The portfolio is more suitable for middle and high school students. For children of primary and Junior classes, this type of school bag is contraindicated, according to many podiatrists.
This is one of the most common types of bags for school children. School backpacks can have different degrees of hardness. A distinctive feature of the backpack from the briefcase is the presence of convenient height-adjustable straps (narrow or wide). The backpack is recommended for children aged 11-16 years. However, now there are symbioses of satchels and backpacks, models with a compacted back, comfortable straps, a more rigid frame, which are quite suitable for elementary school students.
Satchel-school bag with a rigid frame, tight back and reliable straps. Satchels are suitable for children in primary and secondary classes, who often carry a large number of school supplies. The satchel allows you to evenly distribute the weight of the contents without harming the immature spine of the child.
With the right accessory, you can avoid not only problems with carrying your piece of granite science from home to the school Desk and back, but also reduce the psychological burden, especially for first-graders. To do this, we will highlight several main characteristics:
Weight: according to all approved standards, the weight of an empty backpack or satchel should not exceed 1 kg, and when filled should not exceed 10-15% of the weight of the student;
Size: properly selected backpack or satchel, the width and height should be less than the shoulder line, and its lower edge should not fall below the waist line;
Back: best naturally orthopedic, semi-rigid with soft inserts and breathable lining;
Straps: adjustable, 4-5 cm wide;
Frame: it is necessary to give preference to models with rigid walls or rigid side inserts, reinforced bottom supplemented with “legs” for durability.
Design and decor: it is important to note that reliable accessories and the presence of reflective tape are the only elements on which the parent should insist, otherwise give the freedom of choice to the child.
