Kindergarten and Beyond

Educators working on behalf of children in Kindergarten through grade three have a special set of interests and concerns. In this issue of Beyond the Journal, we are pleased to offer our readers two articles published exclusively on this Web site: Kristie Kaurez comprehensively reviews kindergarten policies across the country and Jean Ann Clyde and Mark W.F. Condon provide insight into the learning process involved in reading-like behavior.

Also in this issue: a student teacher describes the learning experiences of first graders' explorations with hissing cockroaches in the classroom; a piece about the transition to kindergarten for children with disabilities; a review of the researched based principles behind excellent kindergarten programs; a list of book pairs that help link math and literacy for first graders; and a comprehensive resource list related to the Kindergarten and Beyond theme, including live links to relevant Web sites.
