It seems like school just got out for the summer, but it is already Back to School time. We will start school here in just two weeks. To get ready for school to start I have gathered a wide array of Back to School printables that will make school fun. There is everything from organizational tools, kids activities, things to send to school and fun things to celebrate the first day of school with.
Make School Fun- Organizational Tools
There two backpack checklist that you can download for free. One checklist is for “Going to School” and one is for “Going Home”. I have printed them out back to back and laminated them. They are already hanging on my son’s backpack.
These chore charts for before school, after school, and before bedtime will help your day fun more smoothly. You can hang them in your child’s room or in the kitchen or anywhere you can quickly glance at them.
This is one of the desk charts from 3 Dinosaurs. Each is a great resource for kids. They can quickly scan it for the basic concepts they are working on.
This chart from $5 Dinners will help you create fun lunches for your kids that include foods from each of the food groups. It may even give you new ideas of things to place in your kids lunch.
Make School Fun- Kids Activities
This would be a great ice breaker activity for kids to find on their desk on the first day of school. They will enjoy finding as many of each school supply as they can.
A fun activity for a whole class or a group of friends. Kids love playing bingo. They will really enjoy this fun Back to School bingo game.
What fun it is to learn new things about your classmates. This Get to Know You bingo will get your kids moving and learning more about each other.
This would be great to send home with kids at your school’s open house or do at home with your own children. It is a great way to learn about what they like and make a memory.
