Back to school printable

**UPDATE: PLEASE go HERE to download the printables**

Hello again! This month’s printable was inspired by those ever popular “first day of school pictures.” This is my little mans first time going to school (Preschool counts right?), and I wanted a way to look back at these pictures and instantly know what grade he was in.So, I created these back to school printable posters for my kids (and yours) to hold as they advance through school.

Simply click HERE or on the images below to download the posters,

print on heavy card stock,

attach to a pencil,

and take a picture of your kid’s first day of school!

I don’t have kids in middle school, but I am pretty sure asking a 7th grader and up to pose for a picture holding these signs is pushing it. Nonetheless, I am making them available for you.

If all else fails, I think mod podging these onto a notebook is a great idea as well!

If your teenager is willing, you can e-mail me for 10th – 12th Grade signs!

Enjoy!

    I absolutely love those for my soon-to-be-kindergartners! But you’re right … there’s not a chance anyone in middle school is going to pose for a photo with that sign. My 8th grader would die! :)

    Thanks so much for the printables. I have a preschooler, 2nd grader and 5th grader to use these for. As far as the middle schooler not wanting to do it….. I plan on laying on the mommy guilt trip!!!

    Thanks again!

    My first day of college I made my roommate take a picture of me in front of my dorm. hehe! I think first day pics hold such great memories of the anxious, butterfly-filed wreck I usually am on the first day!

    I will definitely keep this idea handy for my future kids!

    The signs (and the kids holding them up) are so cute!! (your 8th grader is beautiful!) I think my 4th grader would love to hold it up, but my 7th grade boy..forget about it LOL! There’s no way. I am sharing this!! Thanks for posting! :)

    I hope you have a great school year!

    This is great and oh so sweet! Just one typo — “I’m proud to be AN eighth grader.” I think they teach that grammar thing in 8th grade, so you don’t want your kiddo picking on you for making her hold a grammatically incorrect sign, right???

    I ::love:: these! Is there any way I can pay you to make a couple extra custom ones? I’d love ones to continue through 12th grade plus a couple of college specific ones (like another post I have college students and a toddler at home about to start preschool). I’d gladly pay to complete the set and do a custom one or two (because I’m sure a lot of people don’t need 1L or 2L type signs).

If I make make a suggestion, I think it would nice to have something for lil brother (age 2) to hold so he doesn’t feel left out. Like “I am your biggest fan” or something.
