I know it's early for Back to School Printables, but I also know a few of you have already gone back (wha?!?). Today's freebies are perfect for all of the teachers and educators preparing their classrooms for a new school year. These 11 Free Classroom Back to School Printables are wonderful for welcoming new students for the school year. They are available in Pre-K through 8th grade, with a "Welcome to Your School" version thrown in, too. Download yours below.

Back to School Printables
Personally, I think one of these back to school printables would be cute framed just outside your classroom's doorway...welcoming kids as they enter their new grade for the year. These are sized in an 8x10" format (they print onto letter-sized paper for easy, at-home printing). Just print yours out, frame it up, and you've got some instant classroom decor that is cheerful and welcoming. See all of the grades and design formats available below.

Classroom Back to School Printables

While I normally do printables of this nature all the way through the high school levels, my high school principal husband reminded me that, well, it gets complicated (in terms of grade level) in high school. It's more of a "Welcome to Advanced Placement English Language and Composition Part One". And, of course, that's just one of hundreds of options. Complicated. So, to simplify (I'm sure you understand my reasoning here), we're going from Pre-K through eighth grade. Plus, I did make one that works for a multitude of situations: "Welcome to Your School". See examples of all of these designs and orientations in the next few images.

First Grade Printable
All of the numerical grade level designs, (like the first grade one pictured above), are vertical designs. Again, they're all 8x10" designs that can be printed out onto letter-sized paper, trimmed, and then framed up for display. These designs include a fun background full of "schoolish things".

Kindergarten Printable
Both the Pre-K and Kindergarten versions of these classroom back to school printables were created in a horizontal format, due to the nature of the longer words used on them. You can see the Kindergarten one above. The Pre-K one is the same design.

Welcome Back to School Printable
The "Welcome to Your School" designs actually have both horizontal and vertical orientation options. I wanted to use the word "your" in this design to give little ones a sense of ownership and pride that this is, indeed, their school. 

How to Print and Use these Printables

  • Download your designs here or below. There are more specific download links available below, for easier access.
  • If you need downloading assistance, check out my post on How to Download and Print Printables. Or see its companion video at the end of this post, below. 
  • Be sure to use letter-sized white cardstock paper for the best results. Regular paper is thin and whenever your design is framed, the cardboard backing of the frame can show through the opacity of regular paper...giving it an off-color look to it. 
  • Set your printer to its Normal or Best print setting for these particular designs.
  • As I mentioned, these are all 8x10" or 10"x8" designs. However, all designs have been laid out onto letter-sized formats for super simple printing. Just print onto that letter-sized (8.5"x11") white cardstock. Then you can trim the edges and frame. In some frame cases, you may not even need to trim the design.

  1. I love these, could there be signs for high school. My daughter is going to be a senior and I'd love to have a Welcome to Senior Year sign.
