"It's the teacher that makes the difference, not the classroom."

-Michael Morpurgo

Does this sound like you? 

It's the middle of the school day and you're stressed out from your students... 

  • the noise volume is high
  • clean up time takes forever
  • students are messing around
  • time is wasted while lining up
  • you can't grab the attention of your class

It's incredibly hard being a teacher. Not only do you have to create lesson plans and teach your students, you also have to come up with tricks for managing your classroom. And I know that you don't have time to do that.

I've been there. I've been stressed out and unsure of how to manage my classroom.

But, I found something that works. 

Using music during transition times works wonders. Young children love to listen to music. They love to sing, clap, and move their bodies. In fact, they NEED this!

I know you work tirelessly as a teacher and I want to help you out. I want to provide a valuable resource for you that will help you create the amazing classroom environment you've always dreamed of.

Transition times are STRESSFUL
for teachers and students!

Numerous times throughout the day, students move from one activity to another. For some students, this is an easy task. For others, transition times add confusion, challenges, and frustration to their day. As educators, we want the best for our students. We need to plan for these transition times to eliminate stress and chaos for ourselves and our students.

You don't have to be stressed out!

Whether you’re a veteran teacher with lots of experience, or a new teacher looking for resources, it’s always good to have a stash of transition ideas on hand to pull from on any given day.
