It’s back to school time! I can’t believe the 2018-2019 school year is already here! I’m pretty sure I blinked and summer came and went. 🙁
One of my favorite parts of the school year is the first day when I get to take pictures of each of my kids and compare them to previous years’ pictures to see how much they’ve grown and developed in just a single calendar year. It’s always so mind-blowing! In years past, I’ve always gone on the hunt for free first day of school printables or hurriedly made my own printable version the night before. Yeah, I’m that Mom sometimes. Who isn’t!? But this year I decided to get ahead of the game and create 21 different first day of school signs for not just myself but anyone else who is searching for one last minute. 😉
For now, I’ve created 21 different printables that include chalkboard backgrounds, borders, and various back to school themed elements and designs. Almost all of the 21 layouts include the following grades: preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth. Because let’s be honest, once they hit seventh grade every Mom in the world still wants a picture of their children on the first day but kids may not always cooperate while in Middle School. 😪 All of these first day of school signs are for the 2018-2019 school year. They are not editable but there are a few of them that are fill in the blank!
I’ll continue to add layouts and update these for future school years as I finish more! And since you’re here, don’t miss out on these free printable bedtime routine charts and homework charts/planners as things settle back into the normal day to day school routine. You also won’t want to miss this awesome homework station for the younger ones. All those links are to other free printables of course!
