My Students

My transitional kindergarten students are at the very beginning of their educational career in my class. I like to think of my class as the engine of the school, not the caboose! The youngest learners are certainly getting their Smart Start by spending the first year of a two year kindergarten experience in my classroom.

The TK students spend their day sharing their curiosity, imagination, creativity and personalities with one another.

TK students are the most fun; no TK day is ever the same! Our class is never quiet. We are a ball full of ideas and energy. You may think we are playing, but we are actually learning!

My Project

TK students need materials to interact in their dramatic play "housekeeping" area. By adding pots, pans, dishes and food students will have the opportunity to act out cooking, serving, eating, and various roles.

Pretend play is essential to many skills developed in TK such as empathy, social emotional, oral language, and problem solving.

Imaginative play has a direct impact on the cognitive development of children at the 4-5yr range. It encourages children to express their emotions and play out their ideas. By providing the essentials for a rich dramatic play area students are sure to make gains in their learning!
