The first day of school is so busy. Instead of taking pictures on the first day of school, wait a day and take them on the 2nd day of 2nd grade, then take another one on the 2nd to last day of 2nd grade.
Pictures can be posted for open house and then given as an end of the year gift.
Pick your favorite color or mix and match! Signs are easy to make. Just print, laminate, tape to a paint stirrer, and snap the pics!
