First Day of School Signs – Free and Editable

I’m obsessed with cute first-day-of-school printables.

I plan to create a photo book of each school year with my son holding each grade sign. (And I’ll keep the sign too). What a fun and memorable way to see how he grows and changes!

So whether you like the chalkboard first day of school signs or the clean white sign version, this free downloadable back-to-school sign set includes both designs! Yay!

This set includes:

  • One copy of the clean white version (8.5×11)
  • One copy of the chalkboard version (8.5×11)

This set is fully editable.

You can type in the pertinent answers as they apply to your kiddo.

What I also love about these signs is that you can use them for years to come, switch out the information, reprint, and you’ve got a beautiful, consistent keepsake to enjoy.

The first day of school signs includes a spot to fully customize and edit all of these things:

  • Grade
  • Name
  • School Year
  • Age
  • Things I love
  • Favorite subject
  • Pets
  • When I grow up
  • Favorite color, T.V show, and best friend
  • Teachers name
  • School Name

Where should we send your first day of school signs?
