First Day of Homeschool Printables

I’ve been searching for the perfect printables for the first day of homeschool, but everything I stumbled across with either geared for traditional school or it was too cutesy.

I prefer simple, minimal printables, so I finally decided just to make my own.

I also like school printables that aren’t too baby-ish. This way, theoretically I can continue using the same ones from the early grades all the way up into the tween and teen years.

Here are my simple, first day of homeschool printables:

  • homeschool binder cover
  • first day of homeschool interview
  • first day of homeschool memory page
  • first day of homeschool signs by grade

Printing Tips

Use plain white cardstock to print the “first day of homeschool” sign. This will keep it flat and unwrinkled if you’re snapping photos in a windy area (or with a wiggly child).

Homeschool Memory Binder

I keep a binder of artwork, writing samples, and yearly interviews, and I absolutely love these keepsakes.

These binders also make it easy to keep a portfolio of schoolwork and allows me to easily see progress over the course of a year.

The first page of these binders includes a little interview for the first day of school, with notes about favorite activities, friends, and subjects.

I keep page protectors in a three-ring binder, and just slip artwork into these protectors after I’ve organized them.

Organizing Homeschool Artwork

I’m in the process of writing a full post about how we organize our homeschool artwork, but here’s the short version:

Any artwork for the week is hung up on the fridge or on a wire we strung up in my daughter’s bedroom. She loves admiring her artwork up on the wall.

I have a bin on my desk where art and other school papers are tossed every Sunday night. About once a month, I go through these papers. Most get recycled, but anything that represents a new or emerging skill, a special memory, or particular creativity is set aside.

I write a short note on the back of the work and slip it into a page protector. By the end of the year, I have a whole school portfolio of special memories already compiled.

Anything too large for a page protector goes into a large kids’artwork folder.

Homeschool Photos

Although I do like to make separate photo albums for the year, I also like to include a few school-related photos in the memory binder.

The printable here includes pages for pasting on special school memories to help you keep all school-related works in one place.
