Getting ready to go back to school is hard after a summer of fun. That said you can prepare your child with some fun exercises at home. Whether your child goes to homeschool co-ops or public/private school they will be answering questions about who they are and other kids will want to get to know them. We keep a 3 hole punch, blank paper and little plastic 3 ring binders handy for our kids and put together books for their work. Doing this you can put together a little get to know me book that your child can fill in and illustrate with your assistance.
