First Day of School Free Printable

First Day of School Free Printable

Some will boo-boo, some will yahoo (like me) that the first day of school has rolled around again. We document every single first day of school, and this year have added some cute chevron signs to our photos! We liked the signs so much, we’ve decided to offer these first day of school sign free printables to everyone. You can see my other set of free printable first day of school signs here.

Over the years, we’ve loved having the same sign in every picture! They were designed to not use a lot of printer ink, because we know how that goes. Friends of this blog have shown us pictures with the year or teacher written in, because we’ve left you lots of room for that!

As you can see, I’ve added a few new ones over time. I know that everyone tends to call preschool something different, so there is a first day of preschool sign along side a first day of Pre-k sign and first day of VPK sign (what we call it in Florida!)

I think the one that made me smile the most was this first day of college sign. They’re kind of out of the nest at that point, and they have to have friend take it for mom and dad…but it’s so great to see that sentiment sent back and the milestone marked.

Not going to lie, I’m going to be very teary-eyed when we get to this sign!!

Wherever you are on the path to graduation, I hope you have a magnificent first day of school!

Thanks for these! I could only print them in black and white but I still used them when my kids started school last week. I just let the kids decorate them to make them a little more fun

Thank you for sharing these. I actually used this last year for my son's first day of preschool,. Was hoping to do this as well for school this year however he is going into TK (fall baby) andI'm having a hard time finding a good sign. Would you consider making one for TK? Thank you!
