Supporting Successful Transitions


With the beginning of the new school year, some students will be making transitions into new classrooms and new schools. Supporting success in these transitions is often limited to a brief orientation in large groups.  


The National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center offers suggestions for preparing infants transitioning from preschool to kindergarten. UCLA provides information regarding supporting successful transition for students moving from 8th grade to 9th grade.   

This time of transition for students can be extremely scary and sometimes can be a deciding factor in whether a student likes school for the rest of their life. For the older students, this introduction to school can determine if they will complete their high school education. Anything educators can do to help create a positive transition in any grade will not only influence the tone and climate of their classrooms but can assist in increasing student achievement well beyond this school year.  


Try some of these ideas and visit our newly created group. Post any resources you may have - collaboration only helps you be a better educator!
