FREE Back to School Printables (K-12)



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 printables  for my kids (and yours) to hold as they advance through school.

  22. Thank you! For those momma’s like me that are sending their babes off to Pre-K, (our school calls it K-4) I printed the “preschool”, “kindergarten”, and “4th grade” hodge podge together using the K as the base, cut out the pre and the giant 4. So cute! Thanks again for sharing!
