Sing your way through difficult times of the day and watch your job get easier!

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're 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. Download the specially curated playlist, and learn songs anyone can sing:

  • "Get On Board, Little Children" and "We're On Our Way," which move toe-tapping children in and out of the classroom
  • "Go to Sleep, My Little Pumpkins," which helps kids wind down for naptime
  • "Cleaning Spirit," which acknowledges children as they clean up the classroom

Multiple songs for each transition area guarantee you will find songs your children will love.

A transition-planning guide is included in the book, as are the lyrics to all the songs, formatted so you can easily create your own song cards. The downloadable playlist included with this valuable resource contains all 69 songs mentioned in the book.
