I may be bias because I am a former Teacher myself, but I love the new School year….and free back to school printables!! There is always hope and excitement to meet the new Teacher and we find that it is fun to bring them a sweet gift. Especially if your little one is a bit nervous, it helps to let them treat their “new friend” with something special and break the ice that way. 😉 We have several cute and inexpensive Teacher gift ideas and printables below…..we hope you find one you love too.

Back to School Printables
The first thing I HIGHLY recommend to all parents when the school year starts is to grab one of these keepsake memory books!
I bought each daughter one in Kindergarten and it’s been the best thing I’ve ever purchased. Great way to stay organized and keep special memories safe as well as journaling each school year.
