Does anyone else have formal graduation ceremonies for your pre-k students? We recently had ours and it was a disaster. The children talked all the way through it and they were very silly singing the songs. We have done these for several years and they normally go okay but this one was horrible. It makes me feel bad as a teacher but, it is my opinion that this type of program isn't developmentally appropriate. The owner of the school does it for the benefit of the parents. The children are expected to sit quietly in caps and gowns holding fake diplomas. They obviously start hitting each other with the diplomas and yell that their hats are falling off because they don't fit well. It just left my co-teacher and I with a bad feeling about the whole thing. How do you guys feel about this type of program?
