Starting Kindergarten

Grade Levels

Pre-Kindergarten , Kindergarten


Please note, that although the samples show a preschool to Kindergerten connection, this format can also be used as children transition between classrooms within early education facilites, or within school districts (for example, with the K-1st grade transition). Please feel free to edit the template to suit your needs. Early education practitioners can reproduce the following "Message in a Backpack" and provide it to families of children who will be making the transition to Kindergarten. The resource provides families with ideas for easing their child's end of year feelings and for preparing their child for the transition into a new setting.
