Dixon Tribune’s Facebook Wall: Transitional kindergarten giving children the “gift of time”

Brianna Boyd

Twenty-eight enthusiastic and eager to learn 4-year-olds are getting a jump start on their education this year through a transitional kindergarten class at Anderson Elementary.
Dixon Unified officials have described Teresa Loarca’s transitional kindergarten class as a “gift of time” for the children, who will all celebrate their fifth birthdays in September, October, November or December.

While they are still too young to be in traditional kindergarten, this transitional program allows the children to experience the academics of kindergarten through language arts and math activities while still giving them time to develop their emotional and social skills.
