All about our editable first day of school sign:
First of all, this printable is a little different than my other free printable. This one can personalized! I designed this so certain fields can be changed/updated/edited to apply to your child or student. I created this design template with editable fields in Google Drawing. Anyone with the link will have the option of editing and saving the sign of their very own.
I used fonts in a handwriting style, that gave it an elementary school look & feel. This sign is perfect for the first day of preschool, first day of kindergarten or even first grade.
This file is 8″x10″ in size so it can be printed and the framed in a 8″x10″ frame. Don’t want to frame it? Just print it on regular 8.5″ x 11″ paper and have your child hold it up for a first day of school photo opportunity!
How do I edit the First Day of School Sign?
This is a Google Drawing file. What does this mean? It means that certain areas of the file can be personalized with your child’s own info.
1. Simply click on the link that is emailed to you. You’ll now be brought to the “Copy document” page. This is making a copy of the original document, so you can personalize it with your OWN details and/or info. Select the “Make a Copy” button. If you don’t get this page, you’ll be asked to sign in to your google account before you’re brought to this page. You must be signed into your google/gmail account to access since this is using a free Google resource.
2. After you select “Make a copy” you’ll be brought to Google Drawing featuring your First Day of School sign. At this point you can click on the sign and edit the fields you want to edit: including the name, favorites, etc. You are also able to change the color of the text by selecting the “text” color box in the menu.
3. Once you’re done making all your changes, you can either print from your own computer right away by going to “File” and then “Print”.
Or, if you’re planning on printing later or printing through a printing company: Select “File” and then “Download” and select “JPG” or “PDF”. I recommend saving this as a PDF over a JPG because Google Drawing won’t export a JPG at a high resolution. But either will print fine since this is printing 8″x10″ in size!
Which fields are editable in the free first day of school sign?
All of the relevant fields are editable!
1. The student’s name
2. The grade of student
3. The age of student
4. Answer to “When I grow up I want to be:”
5. Favorites (color, food, book)
