One year my son's teacher had all the students fill out a first day of school printable worksheet. Then, she had them complete a similar sheet at the end of the year. This is a great back to school tradition to get started!
HOW TO USE THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL PRINTABLE WORKSHEET
If your kids are in preschool, you can interview them and fill in the first day of school printable worksheet. As soon as your children are able to write though, they should fill them in on their own.
Years later it's much more fun to look back on the early handwriting and spelling! Trust me. I have 4 teenagers and one of their favorite things to do as a family is to go through old scrapbooks and laugh about how different their little selves were from who they are now.
You can either keep the completed sheets in a folder or file. Or, you can incorporate them into a scrapbook. Like this beautiful scrapbook quote reminds us, these little bits of our children's lives will become a lasting gift they'll cherish.
