It looks as if I will be moving into some new territory instruction-ally. Transitional Kindergarten is the result of SB 1381 in when it amended the California Ed Code for the birth date needed to enter into K and 1st grades beginning in 2012. TK students turn 5 between September 2 and December 2.
Each public school district must offer the program. The goal of the curriculum is to make the Kinder curriculum a two-year process. The CDE recommends California’s Preschool Learning Foundations,California Preschool Curriculum Frameworks, California Academic Content Standards, and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Art and Mathematics as guides. Let the adventure begin. I’ll be using the ITEHelp.info blog here to post updates and reflections on my journey.
