First Day of School Coloring Page

The first few minutes in the classroom can be chaotic!
They all have supplies they can't wait to show you, you need to find papers for the office stuffed in their folders, figure out if they have lunch or need lunch and get everyone settled!

So I created a coloring page to keep little fingers busy while I get all my 'administrative jobs' done!

I posted this picture on my Instagram account and it got a lot of interaction! 

I had made something similar last year for my students...
which greeted them on the first day, but due to a computer crash last October, I lost all my files- including the cute coloring page!

I couldn't find all the same clip art so I did my best to replicate what I had!

Since so many were interested, I made it an editable template that you can download for FREE here!

I have templates for Preschool, Pre-K, Kindergarten, TK (Transitional Kindergarten) and First Grade!

All you need to do is download KG Primary Penmanship (if you want the font to match what I have) for FREE (for personal use) and then open up the file.

Click in the text boxes that I have all set to size and location for Date, School Name, Teacher Name and Room Number!

Fill in your information, save and print!

It makes a great keepsake for anxious Mommies and Daddies too!

If you are interested in the Magic Playdough you see in the picture, you can read about it here and download the tag for FREE too!

Enjoy...and be sure to stop by tomorrow for...
It runs from 8/30-9/4!
There will be tips, freebies and giveaways from each blogger in the hop, as well as a grand prize!
You will NOT want to miss it!

Wishing you a wonderful school year!
Until next post,

  7. Hi!
    I just downloaded the document for this upcoming school year and it says the file is corrupted. When I open it in PP a big red X is on the page...HELP!!!
    Thank you!

  8. Do you have a first day coloring page with boy clipart on it?

  9. Would you be able to make this in Spanish? I could translate it for you! I teach bilingual kindergarten and would LOVE this as a first day activity!

  10. Thank you so much! What a great freebie for the first day! I love that you made it editable! :)

  11. Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for, I was curious if you had a last day of school one as well? I was hoping to keep and compare their coloring. Thank you again for sharing

  12. I'm having trouble printing...I am able to edit & put in the date, schol, room #, but when I print the slide, none of the graphics show up. The date, school and room # only show up. Do you know what I am doing wrong?

  13. Same as above it can't get it to print the image!! :(

  14. Same thing is happening to me. I edited the slide, but my info is not printing???

  15. I am unable to print the edited parts with the pictures. Any suggestions?

  17. When I download this file it will not let me type in the text boxes. I would love some help. I think I may doing something wrong as I don't use Dropbox.

  18. Hi! When I click print only the name, date, room number show up. Everything else in the background is blank. What do I need to do?
