Need the perfect graduation song for a preschool or kindergarten celebration? These songs are for little ones to sing on the big day!
Every school year children learn so much, and each school or program has a unique way of celebrating that. These songs are not only good for schools that do graduation but also for programs that are just coming to a close and want to provide a closing celebration with parents and loved ones.
Graduation songs are a fun way to encourage children to practice following directions, learn music, and to express the arts! I have one child who was born for the stage and another who gets stage fright, and both are normal. The fun bloopers in the middle of the graduation songs are some of the best parts and let their personalities shine!
Graduation songs are also perfect for slideshows. If you plan on putting some pictures together for a slide show, that is always a best-loved idea and gift for the end of the year. Here are some end of the year songs and slideshow songs that will help make your slideshow extra special and enjoyable!
If you’re looking for graduation certificates and class awards, I’ve got you covered in my TPT shop.
