May the Fourth {Grade} Be With You Printable

We survived the first day of school! 
And everyone passed out as soon as their heads hit the pillows.
Last year, for JT's birthday, I made a cool Minecraft Binder Cover
for his birthday and it was so fun to have it personalized to something he loves.
Well, the night before school started I was up and prepping all the school supplies
and labeling everything I pulled out JT's new homework binder and I decided it was
too plain and needed a little sprucing up.

So, instead of going to bed, I decided to make a cool binder cover for this year's binder.
JT is loving Star Wars right now (what almost 10-year-old doesn't?) and
then it hit me, "May the Fourth (grade) Be With You". Get it?!
May the Force Be With You, May the Fourth (grade) Be With You!
I was cracking myself up and so excited that it worked perfectly with 
his current grade and interest.
So, if you've got a Star Wars lover in your life that could used a cool
homework binder cover for his fourth grade year, then this free printable is for you!
The above image is just a preview for your hi-res 8.5x11"

First Day of School Printable Signs: Back to School

first day of school printable

Your mom might be a blogger if she makes you dress up the week before school starts
in your first day of school clothes so that she can snap pictures of you with the fun
Back to School signs she made for this year. The kids were like, "What are we doing?"
I told them not to worry and just to smile. I have mixed feelings about summer coming to
an end and a new school year starting. I love the excitement of getting ready for school to 
start and the anticipation of finding out who their new teachers will be.
However, I'm sad to see our carefree summer days come to an end and have a reminder
that my babies aren't babies and are growing up in to wonderful people.

I've made First Day of School signs every year since JT was in Kindergarten, 
whether they were handwritten or created in Photoshop and printed off 5 minutes before
we run out the door. I love marking time with the signs and then snapping a last day of 
school photo at the end of the year and seeing the growth and progress from the first tot he
last day of school. Time is a thief.

Like I mentioned before, I usually do the signs last minute and then we snap the pictures,
load into the car and I never share with you what I've made. But this year I am on top of it
and I designed an entire set from Pre-school to 6th grade for you to print off and document
your first days of school all over the world. Also, we usually start school after Labor Day and
by then the entire Universe has been in school for what seems like forever, but our
school district has finally wised up and we're starting in August like the rest of the world.

I'm pretty sure that it's going to be an amazing year! I'm kind of nervous that JT is going to be
in Fourth Grade! I mean, that's upper grades! What the heck?! I taught one year of Fourth Grade
and I have to admit it wasn't my favorite year of teaching. I loved the kids, but it was stressful
to be new to the state and teaching a grade I hadn't had any previous experience with.
But I survived and I still think of those kids fondly, even if they did kind of freak me out because
some of them were almost as tall as I was!

So, if you'd like to print a cute First Day of School sign to help you document this big day,
then click on the link below to find the complete set of signs from Preschool to 6th grade,
including a Pre-K sign if you're lucky enough to have that in your life!
Have a fabulous first day of school and an awesome new school year!
