Some areas are starting school in the next week or two, while in my neck of the woods we're just beginning to shop and prepare. It's exciting! My girls are thrilled to be starting 1st grade, and my son is starting 4th grade. I've already scheduled a pedicure to help me celebrate the first day of school, not that I'm counting down the days or anything (26). Take a minute now to print out these great FREE Back to School Printables to start your year off right:
First Day of School Signs
This is one of my favorite FREE printables out in blogland–just print the letter or number for your child's grade (P-12) and take their photo on the first day of school holding this Back to School Sign. Do this each year, and you'll have a great sequence of photos where you see how they've grown each year. Thanks to Jamielyn from I Heart Naptime for these awesome printables.
Hello Teacher Note
Whether it's you or your child who is nervous about the new school year, Amy from TeachMama has the perfect solution, this Hello Teacher Note. It's a way for your child to introduce themselves to their teacher and get a response to make a connection right away. Plus, you'll end up with some handy info to use on future teacher gifts.
Printable Subway Art
Thanks to Melissa at Sweet Coconut Lime for this cute Back to School Printable Art. Just print it out and frame it for an easy way to decorate this month and next. I love the color scheme!
It's hard to get the kids (and mom) off the lazy summer schedule. I like to practice getting up and out early for at least a week before school starts. Jen at I Heart Organizing has a cute printable Morning Routine to get you off to a great start. She also has a Bedtime Routine if you need one.
If you take the time now to print and cut these out, they'll be all ready for those packed lunches the first day of school. Chickabug has adorable printable School Lunch Notes to make your kids feel great every day.
How are you prepping for Back to School at your house?
