Going to school for the first time is a scary and exciting time for every child. Going to a strange place with strange people and being separated from parents and familiar faces can be a terrifying thing for anyone to go through, especially for a child of 4 or 5. It is up to us as parents to prepare our children for that big day, even though we may be feeling just as scared and even a little sad ourselves. Here are some things that you can do to get your child and yourself ready for that first day of school.
Read Stories About Starting School- If you have a normal story reading routine with your child (or even if you don’t), you can start reading them books about the first day of school. Kids will often relate with the child in the story and the outcome of the book may put them more at ease about their own first day. Some great books to consider are Franklin Goes To School by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark and The Night Before Kindergarten by Natasha Wing.

Teach Them The Basics- Before your child begins school he or she should know or should be actively practicing some basic things. These things include being able to spell and write their first and last name. They should also be able to count to 10 and tie their shoes. You should also probably start practicing their address and phone number with them as well. These will probably be difficult for them to learn at first, but if you keep practicing on a regular basis, like reciting it a few times while getting ready for bed, they will eventually commit it to memory.

Attend School Orientation With Your Child- Whenever a child is attending school for the first time, whether it’s Kindergarten or Pre-K, an orientation will usually be offered. This orientation will offer a variety of useful things, such as the ability to ask and have addressed any questions and concerns you may have, the opportunity for you and your child to meet the teachers, principal and bus drivers, as well as the opportunity for your child to take a tour of the classroom and the rest of the school. Depending on the school and whether or not your child will be taking the bus, your child may also be able to take a mini bus ride around the parking lot to see what it’s like to ride on a bus. Plus, your child may get to meet some of the children that they will be attending class and possibly making friends with. All of these things can help your child prepare for and even anticipate the first day of school, so be sure not to miss this important event.

Include Them in the School Shopping- Allow your child to go shopping with you for their new clothes and school supplies, and be sure to let them pick certain things out for themselves, such as their book bag, folders and their first day of school outfit. After you’re done shopping, let them help you organize and pack all of the things they will need to take with them on the first day. This will make them feel like they have more control over a situation that seems to be out of their control, and they’ll probably feel more relaxed and excited as well.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” ― Octavia E. Butler
