New from Learning without Tears, is the Transitional Kindergarten course which teaches capitals, lower case letters and numbers with developmentally appropriate lessons. The heart of the teaching is found in the Teacher Guide. While it may be possible to use the student book without it, children will not receive the depth of instruction.
Beginning with the introduction, the Teacher Guide reviews the stages of learning and provides a scope and sequence for this level. Teaching guidelines and strategies, multisensory activities, and correct writing posture follow. Detailed lessons corresponding to the student workbook are included. Cross curricular connections and supportive instruction for ELL and Enrichment students are integrated for each lesson. Additional teaching support and activities are available online with the purchase of the teacher guide.
At this level, manipulatives recommended include: Wood pieces set for capital letters, Capital Letter cards and mat for wood pieces, Mat Man, Rock, Rap, Tap & Learn CD, Slate Chalkboard and Blackboard with Double Lines, Little Chalk Bits, Little Sponge Cubes, Flip Crayons, and Pencils for Little Hands.
