Transitions can be one of your best tools for managing behavior in your classroom management tool belt. Let’s move beyond the standard transition activities to creating innovative transitions that build brains and create community. Ellen Booth Church is well known as an expert in Circle Time and Transitions.  In this webinar, she presented a look at ways we can use transitions as mini-teaching opportunities and a joyful approach to managing behavior with compassion and clarity. Ellen explored the following topics:

  • How to create quick innovative interludes can positively redirect attention, calm and center, release extra energy and tension, and gently guide behavior
  • A look at the brain research that supports using transitions as innovative learning opportunities
  •  The research that predicts the importance of building innovation skills in the next generation of young children
  • Ways to use transitions to nurture next generation innovators

Learn concrete suggestions that you can take right back to your classroom. This recorded session will benefit educators, librarians and even parents that work with preschool, kindergarten and first grade students.
