My Students

TK stands for transitional kindergarten. It is a free bonus year of kindergarten for children that turn 5 between September and December. This year, students enter their educational careers, truly in a transition. Their parents, teachers, and peers are all growing and adapting to the challenges of the pandemic.

The students in my classroom are outgoing, diverse, and beautiful scholars who represent the best of San Francisco and the future.

My Project

The materials in my project like whiteboards with ten frames and 3D shapes will help build strong math foundations for transitional kindergarten students . By putting math manipulatives in their hands, they will be able to have access tools that we normally share in their classroom.

Give young children a way to express and calm themselves with art supplies, modeling clay and sensory beads during this stressful and uncertain time.

I will incorporate important social time with these materials which is so important at this crucial developmental stage.
