Transitional Kindergarten

Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten! 

Mystery Reader

Welcome to a fun way to visit your child’s classroom and encourage a love of reading this year! Each Friday, a surprise guest will come to TK and read their favorite children’s book to the class. The Mystery Reader can be a parent, relative, or any other special person in a student’s life. Students love listening to their favorite stories, especially when their special person is the one reading it!

Please review the available dates below, then send me an email to request one that works best for you. The Mystery Reader will need to:

  • Send me 5 clues about themselves no later than the Friday before their visit. I share one with the class each day that week. 
  • Come with a special, favorite, or meaningful children’s book to read to the class. Please be sure it is age-appropriate and not too long.
  • Stay for a short time after reading to answer the students’ questions. 
  • Be good at keeping the surprise from your child!

The Mystery Reader is scheduled for Fridays at 9:30 a.m. or by special arrangement. Thank you for participating!
