Kindergarten Graduation Songs

Sing A Long To Celebrate

kindergarten graduation songs

Kindergarten graduation songs are a great addition to any graduation ceremony for kindergarten or adapt them to pre-school too! When planning your celebration, a sing a long is such a fun event.  We have created an easy to learn special graduation song that can be even more fun when you add some props.  See our song below .. sung to the tune of "The Farmer In The Dell".. which all the kids already know.. it is the perfect sing a long song!

Yay For Kindergarten.. a kindergarten graduation song!

Here are the song lyrics to "Yay For Kindergarten"..  one of our favorite kindergarten graduation songs! To make this especially cute, add the suggested props and/or actions while singing.  There are enough verses that every child should be able to participate and some stanzas include all the students.  We don't want to leave anyone out of our graduation song!  We have noted our suggestions beneath each set of lyrics.  You can have everyone sing a long the whole way or have the whole class sing the starting and ending verses and let the selected students solo their individual lines with the group joining in for the chorus of "Hi Ho, the MERRY E-O". You could also have the whole group do a fist in the air during each chorus of Hi Ho, the Merry E-O, Yay for Kindergarten. ( Note that since this is a happy occasion we changed the chorus from DAIRY E-O to MERRY E-O!!!)
