Placemat: Morning Checkoff List for School (Free Printable)

August 14, 2012 by 21 Comments

We chatted the other day about how soon school will be starting back…we’re definitely in the countdown!  My sweet B’s are getting excited and today when I made this Morning Checkoff List for School, they were totally tickled.  I’ve included this document in a free printable in case it’s something that may help your family, too!  I have no idea what to expect from our morning routine, besides church, we haven’t ever had to be out of the house early.

I was given the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator to try out and it worked perfectly.  My favorite feature is the double-walled insulation to keep the heat inside, my sweet B’s touched the machine and it was no big deal. It did a great job laminating smoothly and consistently because of the hot/cold laminating capabilities, and should I ever need it, there’s a jam release lever so I can recenter or remove easily!

I typed up my Morning Checkoff List for School printable in black, but adjusted and saved it in a more gray-scale for those of you printing at home.  I had my Morning Checkoff List for School, printed as an 8×10 at a photo lab.

I used double sided tape to attach my 8×10 to a colorful sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper.  Then I centered the paper inside a letter-size hot laminating pouch and placed it at the front of the laminator.  The rest was done for me in seconds time!

I’m going to use our Morning Checkoff List for School as place-mats in the morning,

And since the photos were laminated, my sweet B’s can use a dry erase marker to let them check off their finished tasked each morning.  Little B convinced me that she could start using it now because only the last two aren’t applicable, the rest still apply!

And when they’re at school, I can erase the marker so we can start fresh the next morning!  Any tips for our family as we start our new school!?!?  Only sweet words pretty please…I’m a bit emotional!  I’ve already arranged to have lunch with a few of my mommy besties to ease my nerves!  I know what God has laid on my entire family’s hearts is not a mistake, He is trustworthy!  XO, Aimee

    I really really love these they are so cute!!! They are great for getting back into the routine of things. Do you happen to have a homeschool one??? I guess you just leave out the grab your lunch and bookbag :P

  6. While we’ve had a checklist, it’s just inside a plastic sleeve, so it gets tossed aside during breakfast. I adore this placemat idea and have not only pinned it but also linked to it in a back-to-school post I’m working on at

      Hi Renee! I used fonts within PicMonkey, Budmo Jiggler and Shadows into Light Two. Thanks for your sweet note…I hope you have a great week! XO, Aimee
