    Description & More Details

    Published by Redleaf Press Free

    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.

    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 CD included with this valuable resource contains all 69 songs.
