I don't remember my first day of school, but judging by the expressions of these funny kids, they're sure going to recollect theirs. And as perplexed as they might look, it is an excellent opportunity for some funny school memes for us!

The first day of school can be pleasant or traumatizing for a small child, depending on what their expectations are and how well they were prepared for this new chapter. However, for these unlucky kids, after the first school day experience like this one, they probably won't be asking the dreaded question, "when is the first day at school?" anytime soon.

As you can see from these funny before and after pictures compiled by Bored Panda, some of these kids looked positively excited to be attending their first day of a new school year. However, education can do strange things to a kid, which is why by the end they looked fed up, traumatized, and in some cases shell-shocked. Still, elementary school is nothing compared to high school, so hang in there, kids! Scroll through our handpicked selection of the funniest first day at school memes and remember that we've all been there once.

Picture him in a suit and tie, and this is how most of my co-workers look by the end of the day.

My first year of teaching I had two kindergarten classes of 32 children each. I went to school happy and excited. At the end of the day I drove home, walked through the house and fell on my bed and slept for two hours. I did go back and taught kindergarten for 5 more years. I would often find a little one sleeping in the home center when school was over for the day. I am retired now after 41 years of teaching 16 of those in kindergarten.

Amazing backpack, I think if she put it on she would topple over backwards. It’s almost as big as her, in fact she may be able to hide in it.😂
