Support Rising Enrollment in Transitional Kindergarten!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is a combination transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten classroom, and this year the number of TK students in my class has tripled compared to previous years. California has not yet adopted standards or curriculum for TK, so we are working hard to differentiate for our students.

My students are hardworking and enthusiastic, and very eager to learn.

Eighty percent of our population is economically disadvantaged and this impacts our school budget and resources. The materials in my classroom for pretend play are old and outdated. More than half of my students are English Language Learners and pretend play is critical for their vocabulary development.

My Project

The high-quality Lakeshore pretend play materials in this project have literacy and math activities built in naturally, and the vocabulary cards will expand the play and learning even more. The early reading and math materials will help us differentiate for our TK students, with materials designed to build solid foundations in preparation for the kindergarten common core state standards.

These Lakeshore materials, which are built to last, will have a significant impact on our ability to provide a differentiated and developmentally appropriate curriculum for our TK students.
