Easy Songs for Smooth Transitions in the Classroom
Araujo, Nina; Aghayan, Carol
Redleaf Press
Young children in school go through 16 to 20 transitions every day. What can make 10 children settle down, clean up, and move from room to room without protest? Even if you are uncomfortable singing in public, the simple songs in this book will help you glide smoothly through tough transitions such as greetings and good-byes, calling attention, cleaning up, moving, waiting, and slowing down. Children will feel more powerful and in control, reducing stress levels during the more difficult times in your day. Using a CD, you can learn songs anyone can sing. Following Acknowledgments and Introduction, the book contains seven chapters: (1) Greetings and Good-byes; (2) Gatherings and Dismissals; (3) Calling Attention; (4) Cleaning Up; (5) Moving; (6) Waiting and (7) Slowing Down. Appended are: (A) Frequently Asked Questions; (B) Song Cards and (C) Sample Transition Planning Guide. The book concludes with an Index of Songs.
