Homework in the TK Class…

In Transitional Kindergarten the main goal of homework is to teach students about responsibility. 



For nightly homework, we assign reading with parents. Reading time is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child. With each book counting no less than 25 pages, it is easy to reach the week’s requirement of 100 pages. The Reading Log is how parents and the school keep track of the amount read by each student. Prizes are awarded to those students who read the most books/words. Reading Logs are sent home on Mondays and returned on Fridays.


Once a month…


We have a monthly Art Project based on a theme. It is sent home with students to complete. Students are asked to work on these independently or with little assistance. They can use their imagination to create their masterpiece. Any and all types of mediums are allowed: paint, markers, pencils, crayons, stickers, glitter, feathers, etc. The sky is the limit. These masterpieces all hang in the classroom for an extended period of time for everyone to enjoy! 


In addition…

We also consider returning library books and remembering to wear your Liberty blue t-shirt on Fridays as homework. Again, these things are teaching students about on-going responsibilities. Periodically, we have assignments tied to a specific topic, shape, color or letter.

In TK it is important to prioritize playtime and sleep. A child’s play is their work. Children at this age need to work hard and play hard, and these things require plenty of rest!
