Are you a preschool, Pre-K, or TK teacher who has been looking for printable pages for back to school time?

After many requests for a Preschool Back to School Activity Pack that is like my Welcome to Kindergarten Pack, I'm excited to share this resource! It is identical to my Welcome to Kindergarten Pack except I've changed the word "kindergarten" to Preschool, Pre-K, and TK.

This resource will save you tons of time planning for that busy first week. It includes no-prep printable pages for the first day of school, basic skill practice, three fun mini books, quick assessments, a first day awards, and much more!
