First Day of School Signs

First Day of School Sign

First day of school is a day that will stay with your students long after they leave your classroom, and what better way to welcome your students than with a cute first day of school sign. Whatever year level you’re teaching, first day of school signs are a fabulous way to mark the significance of the school year. And a fun (and meaningful) way to create memories for your students and their parents on their first day of school!

To make your own first day of school signs, all you need to do is choose a sign that matches your classroom decor theme. Once you’ve found your dream decor theme (and browsing all my classroom decor theme bundles is encouraged) then all that’s left is to print the year level page you are after, trim the white edges and place it into a photo frame.

Why every teacher should have first day of school signs in their teaching kit

Educators understand the importance of creating a stimulating learning environment that inspires students. My range of first day of school signs, classroom decor and teaching resources are designed to help you achieve just that. By using first day of school signs you'll experience the following benefits:

  • Welcoming atmosphere: A first day of school sign in your classroom can help create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for both students and parents. It sets a positive tone for the beginning of the school year and communicates to students that their new learning environment is a place where they are valued and supported.
  • Memorable experience: Including a sign on the first day adds an element of excitement and novelty to the start of the school year. It can contribute to creating a memorable experience for students, helping to establish positive associations with the learning environment. This can be particularly beneficial for younger students who may feel a mix of emotions on their first day.
  • Communication and connection: A first day of school sign can serve as a visual communication tool, providing important information about the class, the teacher, and any special activities or themes for the day. It can also be a conversation starter for both students and parents, facilitating initial connections and helping to build a sense of community within the classroom. This can be especially useful in fostering positive relationships between teachers, students, and their families from the very beginning of the school year.
