Are you getting ready for your kids to go back to school? One tradition we love is to take a photo on the first day of school. We created these free first day of school printables you can use to capture the memory of their first day! And to go with the school theme, they are done on a chalkboard background. This first day of school chalkboard printable will make it easy to take a photo every year to remember their first day!

First Day of Preschool


Print off the grade that your child is entering and take a picture of them holding the sign to remember their first day of school. Frame it for an even more beautiful photo!

Tips for printing:

Size of file is 8×10 but depending on your printer, you may need to ‘fit to size’ in order for it to print the full image. We recommend printing on white cardstock.

Other First Day of School Printable Ideas

Get a large chalkboard printable printed and add specifics about your child like their age, height, their favorite things, and their teacher name.

Frame your printable using rulers! This a fun way to make your first day of school printables even more school-themed. Once you make the frame you can re-use it every year. You can also buy a finished example here.

For a reusable first day of school chalkboard we like this large version here. You can use real chalk to write on your child’s grade and age.

Note – make sure you check all folders to receive your subscription confirmation. Sometimes this can end up in “other” or “promotion” folders. If you do not receive it, contact us here for help.
