Back to School...Getting My Preschooler Ready

The first day of school is right around the corner for most children--if they haven't started already.  I'm not too worried about my 4 year-old's seperation anxiety, but preschool will be a different experience than daycare, babysitters, or summer camps.  I know that she will feel a lot more comfortable walking into her new school if we've talked about and anticipated preschool together.  She has a whole stack of her favorite school books piled up and ready for bedtime.

Program for Preschoolers:


Song:
Off to School We Go
(Tune: A-hunting We Will Go)
Off to school we go,
Oh, it's off to school we go,
We'll take our lunch and ride the bus,
With everyone we know.
Off to school we go,
Oh, it's off to school we go,
We'll learn our ABC's and more,
With everyone we know.

Rhyme:

Two little bluebirds sitting on a cloud.  One named soft and one named LOUD!
Fly away soft.  Fly away LOUD!
Come back soft.  Come back LOUD!

 Time for School, Mouse! (If You Give...)

Song

This is the way we go to school (to Round the Mulberry Bush):

This is the way we clap our hands, clap our hands, clap our hands.  
This is the way we clap our hands so early in the morning.
This is the way we wave hello, wave hello, wave hello.
This is the way we wave hello so early in the morning.
This is the way we go to school, go to school, go to school.
This is the way we go to school so early in the morning.
