Most 4 year olds are that way. start having quiet time so that he learns to slow down a bit when asked.

You could let him play with quiet toys or even read a story, start off with only a few minutes and work your way up to longer times.

you can even find some free school type print out work before he starts school and have practice time at home so he can get a feel for how long it will take him at school, plus it will help him practice writing numbers and letters before he starts. You will have to make it totally fun for him but once he realizes it can be mommy and him time he may want to show you how good he is at it.

Set up times for him to just be hyper and silly(just like recess or playtime at school) during the day so he can work out his energy.
