A child’s day is full of transitions from one activity to the next, and this can be difficult for some more than others. Transition songs can help take the stress out of switching tasks or moving locations, and this is one you should have in your toolbox.
“This is the Way” is set to a simple, familiar melody and turns transitioning into a chance for children to show how well they can follow directions. You can sing this song many times throughout your day as you prompt children to move on to the next activity.
“This is the Way” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Improve ability to transition
- Increase ability to follow directions
- Increase turn-taking skills
Simply change the lyrics to reflect each transition, and then give each child a turn to show everyone how it’s done!
