Preparing for Preschool Graduation

It's that time of the year, we have less than three weeks until our preschool graduation ceremony.  I've been trying to get some special projects done, and we're getting close. One thing that I'm really excited about this year are the memory books that my students have been working on.  Not only are these going to be amazing keepsakes, but they are also helping to prepare them for the kind of work that they will do once they get to kindergarten.

Right now my kiddos are answering the questions with drawings and words to the best of their abilities. When they finish I will add portfolio pages that I've been keeping for them all year. I'm going to bind them all into spiral bound books and present them at graduation.



All of my students are at different developmental levels with their writing, it's something that we've been working on all year. I feel pretty confident that they all have a basic foundation, and the skills they are exhibiting now will easily translate to proper letter formation and writing structure once they get to kindergarten. I love that these books will be a snapshot of their skills right now - and some of their answers are hilarious, for example:

One important thing that happened this year is
- "I saw a thunderstorm, that was important"
- "I painted a picture of my family"

My favorite thing to do at school is
- "Raking leaves" (on the playground)
- "jumping on the trampoline" (we don't have a trampoline at school...)
- "Build a box so I can be alone"

Oh the things they say - we aren't finished with our books yet, so I'm sure there will be more answers to share with you. If you want to see more of this memory book you can find details and a free preview here
