Back to School Grade Level Printables

Commemorate your children’s back to school with signs declaring what grade they’re in.

We started school a few weeks ago. And as often happens, not all my plans came together in time for the first day of school. Good apples are pretty hard to come by in August, so I didn’t get our traditional apple pie [4] made. And I didn’t get “first day of school” pictures [5] taken like I did last year.

But, no worries. I know how to cheat.

We ate cherry pie. And I made the kids signs that simply stated their new grade levels. A sign that proclaims, “I’m in 1st grade!” does just as well as a first day of school sign. And the photo doesn’t have to be taken on the first day of school. Hehe.

I well remember the excitement of being able to say that I was in the next grade up. And to be able to say you were a sophomore? Well, that was pretty cool.

And on that note, can you believe that my oldest child is a sophomore?! I’m stunned. When did this happen? And where was I?!


I made up some grade level posters to document the new school year. While I was at it, I made some for you, too. Preschool through Senior are represented. So, I think there’s something for everyone.

These grade level printables come in two versions: blue and green [6] (my favorite colors) and black and white [7] (to save on printer ink and to let your kids add their own school colors or design them how they want.) Download the files and then print only the pages you need this year.


Take a picture of your kid with his sign and then slap it in the scrapbook. The leftover signs can be slipped into clear-view binders for a fun cover.

Happy Back to School!
