KINDERGARTEN GRADUATION - FATHER'S DAY LINK UP

Lisa:  We're almost done for the year!  Next Thursday is our last day of school and we have never had a graduation ceremony in the past.  Our thought was that the students were just going up a grade level within the same school - not a "graduation" as when students leave one school to go up to another.

What do you do at your school?  Please leave a comment below and let us know what you do about a kindergarten graduation.

As if we don't have enough to do, our new principal came up with a Kindergarten Celebration idea instead!  Now we have our parents coming in first thing in the morning for a little song program in the music room.  Not sure how we're going to squeeze in all 5 classes and their parents!  Then we'll all head back to our rooms for a donut where the children will share their last KinderLit book of the year with their parents, I Bloomed in Kindergarten!  Each one will receive a certificate and then the parents will leave but the children have a full day of school this year - no early release!

Busy time for another 45 minutes or so before lunch!  In the afternoon we have to finish clearing out the rooms with the furniture pushed to one side.  The last hour will be our annual Water Day!  We put out Slip 'n' Slides, sprinklers, bubbles, and small tubs of water for washing classroom toys.  So much fun but so exhausting!   I'll be ready for summer break!

FATHER'S DAY

Linda:  Since our school always ends before June, our students don't create anything special for fathers.  But my granddaughter's preschool made framed pictures of each child on the playground and the kids glued nuts and bolts on the frames.  I wasn't able to get a snapshot of it before she took it home but I did  take one of this very quick and easy project on half a sheet of card stock:
She was in the 3-year-old class this year and is just now learning to print her name.  But your students could sign it themselves - maybe even write the whole sign!
