Every year I like to do 3 things on the 1st day of school!
1st- We start the morning off with a pancake in the letter/number of the grade they are going into! We may even stick a candle in it and sing "Happy School Days to You..."
3rd- After school I make them a favorite treat with once again the letter/number of the grade they just started represented. My cousin Lynne gave me this idea. She always does giant cookies!
I love traditions that help make things fun!!
