    Instead of doing graduation for kindergarten our school is going to "award" each child with a certificate. I'm looking for various sayings I can use for them. We have a total of 28 students in the two classes.

    :thanks: for any help you might have :)

    We gave out awards to my preschool class with candy attached to them..

    Most Mature (M&Ms)
    Little Ms. Wiggle Worm (Gummy Worms)
    Shining Star (Star Burst)
    Hard Work Paid Off (Pay Day)
    You stuck with it (GUM)
    etc.

    This year I found a printable award online that I am printing off on various colors of cardstock. It says You're A Star! Then you write their name in the star. There is a place at the bottom for your name and the date. I am giving them this with a pack of starburst candy. The parents like the awards..the children like the candy..

    while those are funny, I think some aren't so positive. I wouldn't want to be the brunt of a joke or remembered only for.... forgetting lunch money, Pencil chewer, whopper story teller, getting hurt the most. I would find things that are all positive. some of those are not. Great list to choose from.......but my advice, pick only the positive and flattering ones. I think parent's would appreciate that more, too.;) Just my nickles worth.:)

    What I am confused about is how the graduation is suddenly taken away and replaced with a piece of paper and bite of candy? It seems so unbalanced. Why did this change take place? Just curious how the parents react. I teach Preschool and we have a big, fancy graduation every year, complete with caps and gowns...balloons and entertainment...and a diploma.

    At the 8th grade farewell ceremony a girl and I were given Golden Gloves Awards for fighting over a boy all year. I was quite embarrassed, and it didn't get me the boy anyway!

    Just a small suggestion, last year I found actual ribbon awards at the Dollar Tree store that had different sayings on them and I was able to give each child an award. Some awards say:
    First Tooth Award: a child that lost his tooth
    Singing Star Award: a child who loves to sing
    Math Whiz Award: a child who loves to do math
    First Haircut Award: a child who got his first haircut
    Leadership Award: a child who seems to be a leader
    Book Lover Award: a child who loves to read books
    I'm sorry that I can't think of all of them but each child got an award and I said a little something before pinning the award to them. The parents enjoyed it because they knew when their child was going to get the award because they knew their child and how much I praised them all year for their accomplishments. The children also got diplomas, a gift from me and my assistant (footballs, hulahoops and books for the summer) and we had a great lunch afterwards (hamburgers, hotdogs, salad, watermelon) etc. I would love to go above and beyond this year, but I had to take a leave from my job this year to complete my student teaching and I will return next Monday. But there are so many other things you can do. Like put on a little show. I've done "You are my sunshine" with a large sun and sunglasses for each child. etc.;)

    Is there a website or a template that you use to create these awards? I give them each year, but can never remember what I used and it seems to change each year. Thank you!!!

    The awards I'll use are all positive/fun awards. We don't do "graduation" so I want to give my kids something fun to take with them when they leave.

    I make my own on the computer but I think there is a website to use to make them, I'll see if I can dig it up. :)
