Make pizzas or cookies together?
Take her to the zoo?
August 28, 2013 at 9:13 PMTry including her favorite thing in the entire day. My son started 2 weeks ago and he is still telling everyone about our Minecraft homeschool. When my son was 4 we did school at the park alot, I brought a roll of tape and stuck signs to the slide etc. For him to read, I alse did skip counting on the monkeybars. Hopscotch for number counting etc.Last yr our first day was a not back to school day and I took him to chuckie cheese then th e movies, he loved it and I liked going when it wasnt crowded, plus side I met a few homeschool kids doing the same lol. Anything personolized goes over well af 4 so maybe let her decorate her own supplies for her desk, draw on her folder for the year etc. Good luck

Back packs REALLY come in handy. I love having backpacks and can not have too many (although, I have four kids)... I have two heavy duty ones with wheels that we take to the library. Believe it or not, we stuff them full and usually have to carry a few books seperately or stuff them in the diaper bag.
Instead of donuts, have a "big" breakfast with eggs, veggies, fruits, etc... load up on protien and vitamins. Then, later, have cooking class and bake some cookies (from scratch if you can, they love cracking eggs and all that!)

Dress nicely, special dinner with treat, new pencil with pencil box along with back pack. take pictures with saying " MY FIRST DAY SCHOOL, 2013"
I just wrote this in paper and have her hold it when she is ready and take picture.
You might try having a special spot planned for lunch with something she gets to pick out. And I would defensively buy that back pack and use it to put her stuff in. Just treating the whole day like a VIP will make her feel special and always remember for years to come. :)
