FREE! First day of school printables

Fresh notebooks, new clothes, and high hopes… the first day of school is a big day! It’s a sweet tradition to capture that moment for posterity, so the gals at HowDoesShe and I thought you might like some free printable signs to make your photos that much more fun this year!

If you have wee ones, just imagine how wonderful a full collection of photos would be! Or you can start the tradition at any age – we’ve got you covered from Preschool, Nursery School, or Pre-K all the way up through the first day of college.

Free printable first day of school signs

Enjoy!! (And report back with pictures!) : )

PS. Once you’re on the HowDoesShe mailing list, you’ll also be able to download my back-to-school printables set and teacher appreciation printables set!

How to download

These printables were designed by Heather from Chickabug (that’s me!) exclusively for HowDoesShe newsletter subscribers. To get the printables:

{STEP ONE} Sign up for HowDoesShe’s mailing list at www.howdoesshe.com.

    Do you have any blank ones we could type our own class in? My daughters are in preschool and I would love to start these now! My email address is thehofmannfamblog@gmail.com. Thanks!

      Heather - Chickabug says:
      Hi Erin! I'm sorry to say that HowDoesShe and I didn't put together any 'type it yourself' signs - only the pre-printed ones shown. My best friend pointed out that there's no "Nursery School" sign, so I did make add one - I don't know if that would be helpful or not?

        I've heard it's a little browser glitch that causes the error - I think if you clear your cache and cookies it will fix the problem and you'll see the page. It *is* there, promise!

      Heather - Chickabug says:
       Hi Susana! They're not delivered directly to you - HowDoesShe sends you a password that you can use to access a page on their site. On that page, you can click on the various printables and download them. If you signed up for their mailing list, you should have received the password. Go get the printables if it's not too late! : )

    Hi - love your site :) has such cute ideas! I subscribed and confirmed it but still don't understand how to download or print those "first day -of-" signs.
    Is there something I'm not doing correctly? It says something up above about "to get the printables, sign up for HowDoesShe’s mailing list here. Once you’re on HowDoesShe’s mailing list, you’ll receive a welcome message that includes a link to a special download page on HowDoesShe’s site." but i do not see a special download page. Only link in my email was to confirm my subscription :(

I have the email and clicked the link and entered the password but I am unable to find where to actually download these and print them. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong of it I need a different setting on my computer or software to do this. Once I enter the password it then takes me to the same page and says I need to join the email list which I already have and if I enter my email it takes me to a white page that says I'm already a subscriber.

    […] Now back to the first day of school.  I love first day of school pictures.  In our family we have always taken pictures in front of the tree in the front yard.  I love to see how they grow and how clean their shoes once were.  Don’t you love the first day, all the shoes are so clean and the shirts are not stained yet.  I used to always make my kids wear a collared shirt the first day.  I probably made my oldest wear a collar for many years.  But boy have I let go of so many battles like shirts.  These last three years I have used signs with their grades on them.  I found them here at http://www.chickabug.com/blog/2011/08/free-first-day-of-school-printables.html […]
