Children in transitional kindergarten (TK) are curious about themselves and others and the world around them. They are eager to learn and need a learning environment that both engages them and builds on the knowledge they bring to school. Based on the California Preschool Curriculum Framework, play is the primary context for learning for TK children (California Department of Education [CDE] 2011, 5). When TK children are learning through play, they have opportunities to be creative, strengthen their social skills, and solve problems. As they explore, practice new skills and behaviors, and participate in dramatic play, they are also processing information and making connections between what they already know and what they have just learned or are in the process of learning.
