Transitions happen all the time. Most adults have learned to cope and strategize, either from past experiences or by seeking support from people and resources. Children, on the other hand, require the teacher’s leadership, support and explanation to cope with the variety of transitions they encounter throughout the school day. Efficient and developmentally appropriate transitions and expectations are key to a ‘steady’ classroom (especially for students with learning issues). This seminar will focus on the many kinds of transitions that students must pass through at school. We will explore the teacher’s role in teaching transitions and knowing how and when to transfer the responsibility to the students. We will offer and share tips for creating transitional practices and activities for the whole class as well as for individual students, in an effort to maintain efficient and focused instruction.
