10 Free Back to School Printables and Forms!

Yeah! 10 FREE back to school printables and forms for school based therapists and teachers! What wait??? 

Yes folks, the time has officially come for back to school again!  Well sort of….  Due to the pandemic back to school may look very different for each school district this year.  Regardless, when school does start back up again, whether in person, distance learning or a hybrid model, it may help to have a routine to stay ahead of the curve.  

In reality though, being organized and prepared are not some of my strengths.  Being creative and flying by the seat of my pants are definitely my strengths!  That being said, I thought I would be proactive for you and organize some back to school printables to at least keep you prepared.  Here are 10 FREE back to school printables for school based therapists and other school staff! And actually there are 11 freebies (the bonus one is awesome).  But wait there’s more…. LOL.  I just added one more freebie for 2020 at the bottom so make that 12 freebies!!!

    Calendar skills are an important skill that young children learning in the classroom. It helps them to learn about the days of the weeks, months, numbers, counting, grouping, and so much more! Sometimes thought it can be hard since children have varying levels of abilities. Perhaps some can write the numbers with ease and others are just learning.
