There are lots of ways to prepare yourself and your child for your new adventure. There are ample amount of books on this topic. I think I must have bought every one. We went to the school for an orientation with the teacher. I met some of the other parents, and we actually had a chance to have a play date with another child before school started. He picked out his backpack and his lunch kit. We drove by the school a few times and sounded excited about seeing it. We talked beforehand about what kindergarten will be like and what he can expect. I didn’t let him see my apprehension.
At that time, I didn’t turn to the web, but I can tell you now that there are lots of resources on the Internet for fun colouring pages and activities that you and your child can enjoy in preparation for the first day, such as Kiboomu.
It’s a day that will come and pass too quickly, but the lessons learned this coming year will last a lifetime as Robert Fulgham says in his poem, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”.
