Pre-school graduation bulletin board ideas

Children remember 20 per cent of what they've heard but 50 per cent of what they've seen. The notice board can be a way to reflect the personality of a pre-school class and to think outside the box when it comes time for pre-school to graduate. The notice board can be used to help young pupils reflect on what they've learned throughout the year as well as understand that it's time to move on to primary school.


Formal university graduation ceremonies include mortarboards (graduation caps). Cut out 22.5 cm (9 inch) black squares for each child and staple them on to the board like diamonds. Pupil names can be added to each cap using white chalk or white stickers. Choose two colours and staple string to each cap for tassels. The Teacher's Corner adds a variation to this theme -- use cropped, close-up photographs of each child and attach the cap to their picture.

Moving on

Using the theme of moving up from pre-school into the primary school's infant class, attach a big photograph or cut-out of the planet Earth to the centre of the notice board. Make a rocket out of construction paper. The letters along the top should read, "Blasting Off to School." For a personal touch, add stars with the student names surrounding the planet. Another variation requires students to make boats from construction paper. Cut out full-body photographs of children sitting or standing on their boats. Attach these all to a blue notice board. Arrange a title that reads "Sailing Away To School."

Funny ideas

Draw, make or print the backside of a bear looking over his shoulder. Put the bear at one side of the notice board. Fill the rest of the bulletin with photographs of fun pre-school activities taken throughout the year. Add the title, "It's Almost Behind Us." Use a light blue background and add a gigantic sun wearing sunglasses. Take photographs of pre-schoolers wearing sunglasses and attach the pictures in a random fashion underneath the "sunlight." Add the slogan, "Our Future is So Bright We've Got to Wear Shades."
