My oldest daughter started kindergarten this past year and she loves it. I just kept telling her how much she's growing up and that she gets to be in a big girl school, make lots of friends, have fun and learn a lot. She was so excited from me pumping her up with all the positives that by the time the first day of school started she felt like such a big girl that she couldn't wait to go. The school should have a list of stuff that you'll need to bring for her to school. It's usually a couple boxes of crayons, a box of kleenex, a couple of glue sticks, a box of markers, a thing of washable paints, a backpack and some child safe scissors. Depending on the school, maybe a notebook or two.
