It’s about that time of the year again. The end of the school year is getting closer. So you know what that means. Graduation time! It's also time to get your graduation certificates ready.
That’s right. You have spent an entire school year helping your students grow their young minds. As a preschool, Pre-K, and/or Kindergarten teacher you are so proud of them. They’ve progressed in so many ways. Socially. Academically. And even emotionally. I’m sure you’ve heard them even talk about how they are ready for “Big Kid” school.
For that reason, graduation is one of the best ways to celebrate completing the school year.

End of the Year Superlative Award Certificates for Graduation
This download also comes with 30 superlative certificates. Also known as end-of-the-year awards. So when creating this product, I got my inspiration from award ceremonies, such as the Oscars and Emmy’s. That is why I decided to create a similar themed background on these award certificates.
In addition, I created tons of classroom superlatives that related to the theme. For instance, at the Oscars, they announce the nominees and winner for “best film writer”. So for this product, I created a certificate award for “best writer” to give to one of the students.
Here are examples of a few awards included in this product.
Giving out these awards is a great way to recognize your students’ strengths and talents. Especially in front of their families. It’s also an awesome way of acknowledging them for who they are. This shows your appreciation and support for your students. Accordingly, this also makes your students feel good and boosts their self-confidence. Because when kids notice that their family is proud of them, they tend to be proud of themselves as well.
So for graduation ceremonies, I usually plan them by finding an empty room in my school program. My coworker and I work together and transform that room to look like an award ceremony venue. Like the Oscars or Emmy’s.
I always encourage parents to dress up their children for this event. As we all know parents love dressing up their children. It definitely gives them a reason to take pictures and create memories! As a result, this event is always a success and much needed. It gives teachers and families a chance to show appreciation towards each other. Especially towards the children. As a teacher, I always find this to be a very humbling experience.
Families love the graduation certificates as well. It shows your appreciation towards their children. Parents love it when their child’s teacher notices and appreciates their child. Especially their child’s personality, educational strengths, and interests.
They also love it when a teacher has positive things to say about their child in public. Presenting these certificates encourages and confirms that. It also gives teachers a chance to use those certificates as a way to express this positivity.
For that reason, they often cherish these certificates. As well as consider it as their child’s first educational certificate. It’s awesome to say that you were the first teacher to give these young learners their first diploma of many.
