** A Terrific Teacher Tip **
Allow your students to use water colors to paint this cute little unicorn. When it dries, they can cut out the square of just the unicorn, glue it onto a piece of construction paper and it makes a cute bulletin board or refrigerator piece of art! Click here to read more about using Color By Code and Color By Number worksheets for a mini-art lesson. Many schools have no art teachers, no art classes, and this is not a substitute for a great art lesson, it is just some ideas to add a little more joy into your students day.

** Another Terrific Teacher Tip **
The directions for this page has a section for the teacher to read to the boys and girls.

Instructions:  Color By Number. Read this tip to the students. To color “light blue” color the area with your blue crayon very softly. To color “dark blue” color the area with your blue crayon with some pressure. Use this tip for pink too.

I found that even with my 3rd graders, if they had been at a school without an art teacher, many of them would come to the color gray, and I would hear, "I don't have a gray." So this was a great time to teach them about using a black crayon lightly for shading. Click here to read more about it.

Looking for Some Fun Ideas for Kindergarten Graduation?

I LOVE Kindergarten graduation! Whether you celebrate as an entire grade level, or just in your classroom, it is a memory that parents and grandparents cherish forever!

These FREE End of the School Year Graduation Day Color For Fun Coloring Pages are my gift to you for another year of hard work, thank you teachers!

Two More Pages for the Graduates!
My free Graduation Coloring Pages also include a page for a boy graduate and a page for a girl graduate WITHOUT the word "Graduation" incase your school does not want it call it a graduation. I've been in some districts that want the term graduation saved for 12th grade, and I get that, but your parents will still love your ceremony no matter what you call it! 

Some other alternative ideas I've heard include:
Kindergarten Promotion!
Kindergarten Celebration!
"Here Comes Summer!"
Growing Garden, Our KinderGARDENers Bloom!
Oh, the Places You'll Go
Kindergarten Commencement
Kindergarten Ceremony


If you have another title for Kindergarten Graduation that you use, feel free to leave it in the comment section and I'll add it to this post to share with my teacher friends!

Copied on Colored Paper and Tied with Simple Sting!


You can do graduation with your entire team, with a neighboring teacher or just by yourself. You can have parents donate food for a party like atmosphere, or just set out some cookies on a plate. My last school went to the High School on buses so that there would be enough room for everyone to see. It was their tradition and I loved every minute of it! One of my schools held it outdoors on the basketball courts with the high rise bleachers. But it can be as simple as lining up your chairs at the front of the room so your boys and girls can sit alphabetically waiting for their name to be called.... No matter how detailed or how simple you and your school make it, your families will love seeing their babies graduate to First Grade! ENJOY!


A Song and A Poem For YOU!
Here's a cute, simple little poem and song that your class can memorize for their families. Don't underestimate the simplicity of SIMPLE, it's the end of the year, it's a very busy day and your students will be excited, but it is worth it!

Kindergarten Graduation Mini-Poem
Beginning tune of "Twinkle, twinkle, little star."
(By Fern Smith)
First grade, first grade, here we are!
(Place thumb to chest to point to self.)
Kindergartens' rising stars!
(Throw hands up in the air like the letter V.)

Kindergarten Graduation Mini-Song
(Can be used with ANY grade actually!)
To First Grade we will go,
To First Grade we will go,
Kindergarten prepared us well,
To First Grade we will go!

Backdrop Idea!


Enjoy you and your students' day!
