We are not quite there yet but before you know it, back to school time will be on the horizon and everyone will be thinking of some back to school traditions to do with their kids.
One of the things a lot of us to is to take a special picture on the porch of our children looking excited with their new backpacks and clothes, ready for a new school year.
Although you can buy chalkboard signs at store like Michaels, it’s really easy (and free!) to print your own off at home and stick it in a frame.
If your child is starting school this year, you probably want to choose a first day of kindergarten sign that you love so you can use the same template for the next 8-10 years.
Below you will find my First Day of Kindergarten sign (free download) that will take you from preschool all the way to grade 8.
If you want to check out 12 other options for designs with the traditional wording “first grade”, second grade etc, make sure to check out my Free Printable First Day Of School Signs For All Grades.

Tips For Your Free Printable Signs
You can print the signs at home using a regular color printer.
The image size is regular letter size in landscape so it is easy to do at home, without the expense of a professional copy shop.
You can use white card stock for a crisper look or if you want to forgo the frame.
I always use frames from either Dollar Tree or Ikea for my back to school pictures.
You only need to buy one frame that you can use every year.
Download Your Files Here
To grab your files, just click on the link below and you will be taken to a dropbox account where you can download some or all of the signs.
Then all you have to do is print them out, and put them in a frame.
Unfortunately I can’t help you make the kids cooperate and smile for the photos!
