Transition Time: Make It a Learning Time.
Baker, Betty Ruth
Teacher selection and planning of appropriate transition activities for preschool age children is discussed in this paper. Teachers are encouraged to use transition time to provide an opportunity for imaginative and creative thinking and to avoid tedious waiting and chaos. Transition activities can be used as a teaching technique to prepare children to listen, to relax, to move from place to place and from activity to activity, and to allow opportunity to apply and reinforce learning while others in the group complete a task. Topics covered include the following: criteria for selection of transition activities; suggested transition activities; activities for grouping and moving children; activities for changing learning centers, cleaning up, or completing tasks; relaxation activities; preparation activities for the next activity and listening; and waiting activities. Specific learning activities to be used by preschool teachers are described under each topic. (DST)
