My Transitional Kindegarten students have families that love them. These students start school at the age of 4, and will be in Kindergarten next year. We live in work in a rural part of California. Many of our students are on free or reduced lunch.
My families this year have been exceptional.
They love their children and work hard to make sure they are educated. Although TK students do not have to know letters and sounds, 90% of my students have mastered them. They even asked me yesterday, if they could write sentences. They have a love for literacy, and I'd like to share that with a gift to last a lifetime.
Dr. Seuss' beloved book Oh the Places You'll Go has been a gift of a lifetime for students. Many years ago a parent gave me their child's book to write memories. Every year that book has followed the child with memories from every teacher.
As a Transitional Kindergarten teacher, I am the child's first experience in education.
This year's students have been exceptional. Their families are loving hard working people, and I'd like be to send them off with this book and words of love and hope. This book will carry on to their other teachers; so their teachers can continue the tradition. I want them to know they're loved, and I want them to remember the teachers that spent countless hour working and caring for them.
