first day of school printable sign ...


Back to School is just around the corner, and I can't believe that my oldest will be staring Kindergarten this year?! It is unbelievable how fast time flies, and I know that before I know it, he will be entering high school!  One day, I will look back on his first day of school pictures, and wonder where my baby had gone?

I thought it would be fun to document his first day of school with a fun little sign, that gives the details of what grade he is in, who his teacher is, and the date of his first day.  That way in years to come, it will be easy to remember what he looked like on the first day of school for each grade!

You can document your little ones big first day too!
All you need to do is download the first day of school printable pdf, and print* it onto paper. (preferably onto card stock, so it is sturdier)
*be sure to select the landscape printer option before hitting the print button. please let me know if you have any troubles downloading the pdf file.
Write in your child's grade, name of their teacher, and the date of their first day of school for the year.
Have your child hold up the sign on their first day of school, and snap away!
You can take the pictures on your front porch on your way out the door, or bring them to their school before it starts and take their picture there.  

Don't be afraid to bring some fun props like books to stand on, their lunch box, backpack, or an apple for the teacher!

I had those books with the set of our family's encyclopedias -Colliers. Great memory.

Love the sign. But also the memory of the set of books that came with our encyclopedias when I was growing up. That was the first time I read " The Hundred Dresses".
