Gehringer's TK Cubbies


Transitional Kindergaten

Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

My name is Allison Schwartz and I am so excited to welcome a new class of students this year.  I will be using a Shutterfly website to send reminders for upcoming events, share pictures I take in class, ask for volunteers, hope for donations, as well as post my Monthly Newsletters and Homework assignments.

To gain access to my Shutterfly page you must be invited. Please send me an e-mail letting me know who you are at and I will send you an invitation. Thank you and let's all have a wonderful school year! 

Supplies Wish List

In TK supplies are for the students as a whole class. I ask that students do not bring personal items as they get lost and students become very sad.

I often will ask for donations to help supply the students with daily needs in the classroom. I have provided a list of items that are always in great demand throughout the year.

Crayons (Crayola 24 count box please)

Sheet protectors (Heavy duty as we use them to write on/wipe off frequently)

Address labels (30 per sheet such as Avery #5160)

Baby wipes

Clorox wipes


Hand Sanitizer

Sharpies (fine and extra fine tip)

Dry Erase Markers (particularly thin point)

Glue Sticks

Glue Bottles

Ziploc bags (sandwich and gallon size)


**Fun items that we use often for art projects:

Googly eyes

Colored tissue paper

Cotton balls
