Printable First Day of School Signs (and Bonus Photo Ideas)

Posted by on Aug 21, 2012 | 28 comments

I’ll never forget my first day of school! The excitement, the new back pack, the crisp new notebooks, and the first day of school photo my mom took every year!

Here are a few fun twists for your children’s first day of school photos…

#1 – Use a chalkboard and document important details (date, grade, and what your child wants to be when they grow up). Have your child wear his or her backpack and use school books as a chair for an added touch.

#2 – Have more than one little one at home? Have siblings take their first day of school photo together. Decorate a chalkboard with all of their information and feel free to be creative with fonts and colors!

#3 – Take a “First Day of” and “Last Day of” photo to see how your child has grown over the course of the school year.

First Day of School signs are available in both black and white (I recommend these if you want to print on colored paper)…

Pre-K        Pre-School       Kindergarten       First Grade       Second Grade       Third Grade

Fourth Grade       Fifth Grade       Sixth Grade       Seventh Grade       Eighth Grade

Ninth Grade       Tenth Grade       Eleventh Grade       Twelfth Grade

…and color (best when used with white paper). Just click on the grade above or below to download and print!

Pre-K       Pre-School       Kindergarten       First Grade       Second Grade       Third Grade

    I wonder if these are editable. I am looking to add the date and my son’s school to the last day of Pre-K one …

  25. Melissa, I’m sorry these aren’t editable at this time. If you have an editing program (such as Photoshop or Photoshop Elements) feel free to open them up and work your magic! Thanks for stopping by!, Becca

  28. Your work is awesome and creating wonderful memories for my family. Would it be possible to get the First day (black and white and color) ones as .jpeg instead of .doc I don’t have a current version and I’m having a hard time using the .doc versions I wanted to save them to be able to use them in the years to come.
    Thanks so much
