Can you believe kids are heading back to school already?
For me, this summer has flown by.
Are you ready?
One of my favorite things to do on the first day of school is snap a quick picture of each child with a sign telling what grade they are in.
The photos are cute, but it may also be for selfish reasons – the signs in the photo help me keep the photos organized. Each already tells me if it was the first or last day, and what grade it was from.
In the past, I’ve used a small chalkboard for these photos.
Last year, during the busy season of having a newborn, the first and last days of school snuck up on me.
On both mornings, while the kids got ready for school, I ran around like a crazy lady trying to find our chalkboard. And a piece of chalk.
Apparently not an easy task – be prepared mamas!
It made everything feel hectic, not like an exciting day. Definitely not what I was hoping to offer them.
This year, to make it easier for me and all of you, the signs are already made and ready to be printed.
Below are free printable signs for the ‘First Day of School’, along with matching ‘Last Day of School’ signs. You’ll find matching signs for Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten – 12th grade.
Just in case these signs don’t fit your school situation, there is also a generic ‘First Day of School’ and ‘Last Day of School’ sign for 2017-2018.
Whatever grade your kids are in – we’ve got you covered!
Each sign can be printed on standard 8.5×11 card stock or paper. Just download the PDF and print in color.
Don’t forget to Pin this post to save it so you can print the matching ‘Last Day of School’ signs in the spring!
