Transitions are a large part of any school or work day, as we move to different activities or locations. Studies have indicated that up to 25% of a school day may be spent engaged in transition activities, such as moving from classroom to classroom, coming in from the playground, going to the cafeteria, putting personal items in designated locations like lockers or cubbies, and gathering needed materials to start working (Sainato, Strain, Lefebvre, & Rapp, 1987). Similar requirements for transitions are found in the employment and home setting as well, as individuals move from one task to another, attend functions, and join others for meals and activities.
Moving to a different school, or even a different class within the same school, can be daunting for pupils, whatever age they are. Here we have collected together tried and tested resources for easing the transition process, to support pupils – and their teachers.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
