What Happens in a Transitional Kindergarten Classroom?

In transitional Kindergarten, teachers help children develop social skills through activities that build confidence and communication. They also expose children to reading and math in an exciting, interactive way by using educational games to teach children about words and sentences and help them understand mathematical concepts like counting and patterns.

Shasta Union School District's Transitional Kindergarten will offer:

  • Classroom facility and teacher: Transitional Kindergarten classes are located on all Redding School District sites.
  • Length of school day: Students will attend school every day for the same times as the traditional kindergarten students.
  • Curriculum and Learning: Students learn important new skills that build on what they may have learned in preschool and help them adjust to the elementary school environment.
  • Learning Environment: Students learn by working with the teacher in small and large groups and also have opportunities for independent exploration.
