The first days of school are essential for students to start getting comfortable with the teacher and classmates, as well as getting to know each other. While high school introductions are usually quick, elementary school teachers often organize activities at the beginning of each school year to welcome new children, tell them how summer vacations have been, etc.

One of the most common activities is completing a first day of school board that each student fills out with their information. This information can be about tastes (favorite movie, food, or color), about school itself (a favorite subject), and/or basic information about the person (name, age, or height). In the end, the children share it with the other pupils to get to know each other better and look for common ground.

Many centers use small chalkboards for this activity, although more and more are using printed sheets because, apart from fulfilling their educational purpose, they can also be colored later on.

At EDIT.org, you'll find free first day of school templates that you can customize to your liking and then print in a few minutes. Save time and surprise the little ones with designs adapted both to them and to your educational center.

You must adapt all your designs to your students' age. It's not the same to teach first grade as it is to teach sixth grade, so the elements and information shown in your composition should meet the needs of each age group.

It's also vital to adapt the composition to what you want to practice or improve with your students. For instance, if you work with high school students, you can design the activity to ask them to explain the information they've written, thus improving their ability to express themselves.

In any case, don't forget to include in all designs your school name and the year. You can also use your institution's colors, or insert other elements that you deem convenient. On the editor, you'll also find other useful templates for your school, such as customizable school schedule designs or original templates to prepare classes.

Once the design is done, print it in the highest quality in the format of your choice (JPG, PNG, or PDF). Saving the composition in your user profile will allow you to re-edit it at another time or create copies of it to make other similar designs, either at the level of content or design pattern.

Making your creations from the same template will save you time and effort, so you can invest them in planning your classes or making more material. Finally, remember you can share these templates with other teachers or edit them together if necessary.
